I got into a conversation with someone at ZRH once, while I was spotting. He said he knew someone who flew on El Al and during boarding, one of the suitcases in the cargo hold started vibrating. And of course on El Al.... Everyone had to get out and the owners of the suitcase had to open it infront of all the other passengers. Of course you can guess what was in there.

Standard security advice : weapons are allowed to be carried in hold luggage, condition they are not loaded. --> Remove batteries !
When in hand luggage : be prepared to have the whole airport stare at you when the security agent takes it out of your bag and asks you to explain about the purpose of your taking it in the cabin.

Off the subject slightly. Two friends and my self were flying rom Geneva to Luton this year, and Marc (friend of mine) bag was x-rayed but he had a lot of things in there so they wanted to open it to search it, now the 3 of us had been on holiday in france. Marc always insists on a holiday with friends to buy porn. So these two porn mags were in his bag and a woman asked him can I please search your bag sir?

Marc agreed and became quite red when she opened it and saw the mags and took them out to look through the rest of his bag.

Exactly! Imagine if JFK, ORD or LAX was shut down due to a sex toy in a trash can. "Americans are paranoid and fearful and cowardly...afraid to fly... BLAH BLAH BLAH"
Why aren't those people crawling out of their holes this time? Oh, yeah...it happened in Australia, so it was an "appropriate safety precaution" and not fear or paranoia at all.... The double standard still reigns supreme here.

I have come face to face with a similar situation...once I was working in the baggage department and one of the bags sitting in the office was vibrating. I was a little apprehensive about opening the bag to see what it was, but curiosity got the best of me and I just had to...

And yes, I turned it off so the battery wouldn't wear out.

haha, reminds me of an episode of airline when a bag was buzzing and they were afraid that it might be a sex toy, turns out it was a battery powered toothbrush, i guess this type of stuff happens more often than we hear about it.

And to remind you of the last time it happened...

"A pilot made an emergency landing when a suspect device was detected on a
jet packed with British holiday makers -- but the threat turned out to be a
sex-aid vibrator.

The A-300 Monarch Airbus was two hours into a flight from Goa when the crew
became suspicious about a piece of hand luggage. The pilot, Captain Dave
Johnson, radioed a bomb alert and was ordered to divert to Bombay.

The plane, carrying British-based passengers and crew, was taken to an
isolated handling bay where 369 people were evacuated.
Bomb disposal experts boarded the plane and examined the suspect baggage and
identified the device as a battery-powered sex vibrator.
A Monarch Air spokeswoman applauded Capt Johnson's actions. "We are looking
into the incident to find out how it got on board," she said. The passengers
later continued to Gatwick."

I've been to MKY

And let me tell you, it has to be one of the most boring places on earth. Its just a big Cane farming area and this was probably the most exciting thing that has happened there for years!!!!

Only in Australia could have this happened (or possibly Norway or Holland)

lol, worth a good laugh though.

You may laugh about how boring Mackay is but per capita they are amongst some of the paid people in Australia
