Airport scare update: Hazardous material was honey

Last Update: 3:51 pm

The "hazardous" material that closed Kern's principal airport, cancelling flights and delaying hundreds of passengers, has been identified. It was honey, according to Sheriff Donny Youngblood.

A genuinely dangerous material, however, apparently set off alarms at the passenger screening station, the sheriff said.

I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning

What did they think it was? Hazardous materials (paint, lighter fluid, WD40 etc) are FOUND EVERYDAY. One time I saw a ziplog with what appeared to be human plasma! Did my airport shutdown? NOPE.

The story here in Wisconsin (the passenger involved was from WI) was that he told TSA it was honey, it set off alarms for TNT and TAPT. They freaked out and went into overdrive because it was in gatorade bottles, and didn't "appear to be" gatorade. They shut down the airport to do more tests to confirm.... HONEY.

Hey Obama, keep the change! I want my dollar back.
