The NYPD's bomb squad was called to LaGuardia Airport early yesterday after fireworks were found aboard a plane, authorities said.
Four M-80 explosives were found stuffed into a tissue box in a bathroom at the rear of the aircraft by a Spirit Airlines mechanic shortly after Flight 710 arrived from Fort Lauderdale, police officials said.
Members of the bomb squad were summoned about 12:30 a.m. to remove the explosives from the plane, which seats about 150 people, officials said.
No one was injured in the incident, which is still under investigation.
"Spirit Airlines is working very closely with authorities to investigate," said airline spokeswoman Rini Ader.

Our lovely government's TSA (which is full of great workers) has let in something else. Why is it in this country throwing money into something is the answer to everything? This would have done a tremendous number on an MD-80. I just don't get it. How do things like this happen so frequently?
