TSA  Thanks for stopping by! If you have travel questions, please contact AskTSA on Twitter & FB Messenger.

It’s safe to sleep on Elm Street again. Freddy lost his glove at the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). He got burned after forgetting to take it off before going through the TSA checkpoint.
...
If you find yourself needing to travel with your razor glove, please pack it in your checked bag.

Travel #PSA: While worn out fedoras and tattered green and red sweaters are discouraged in the fashion world, they are permitted at TSA checkpoints.

This glove was actually discovered in a traveler’s carry-on bag at ATL. Freddy isn’t real. Or is he??? #FreddyKrueger #NightmareOnElmStreet #ATL

On behalf of TSA, Taffey would like to thank all military members for their patriotic service in support of our country. Thank you!

It’s been a hard day’s night and Mazli has been working like a dog. He’s a Vizsla, and his name in Hungarian roughly translates to “Bit of luck.” His handler describes him as a “Velcro dog” who is always sticking close to her, whether it be leaning on her, running his head under her hand, or placing a paw on her foot. He enjoys rolling over and rubbing his back on the ground in between searches and seems to enjoy all the laughs it causes. He really loves little kids and tries to sneak some free pets as they pass by him in the airport!

You might remember Mazli and his handler Freya Rossi from two other previous posts. If not, they work together as an explosives detection team at the Indianapolis International Airport (IND).

Here’s our #Webbys acceptance speech in it’s entire 9-seconds! Sorry, the extended director’s cut isn’t available yet. Thanks again for all of your support! @thewebbyawards

While they can look quite fetching on a key ring, you’re barking up the wrong tree if you thought that stabby dogs could be packed with your carry-on property. They must be packed in checked baggage. This stabby dog was discovered in a traveler’s carry-on at the Cincinnati - Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).

We went with the suggestion from @far.nice for the five word acceptance speech for our three #Webbys — “This Webby is Carry-on Approved.” Thank you so much to all of our followers and to all of the #TSA officers out there that find the crazy items that we post.

Diesel (on the right) got a farewell kiss from his replacement, Sara, at his retirement ceremony last month at the Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ). Diesel was a TSA explosives detection canine for 7-years! So what happens to retired canines? Do they buy a Winnebago and travel around the country? Well, in Diesel’s case, he was adopted by his handler, so he get to keep on living in the same home with the family he loves. Thanks for your service, Diesel!

Hats off to the TSA Explosives Specialists who designed this training aid. Hold on to your hat, because this hat trick doesn’t involve hockey or rabbits.
...
This ball cap is concealing an inert improvised explosive device. To be clear, this isn’t real, and our officers didn’t discover it in a bag. It’s used for training purposes only.
...
We’re sharing it here to show you that explosives can be hidden anywhere. So the next time you’re wondering why in the heck a TSA officer is taking a closer look at your hat, or anything else you’re traveling with, just remember this post.

A record of 26 firearms were discovered in one day last week by TSA officers. A total of 90 were discovered for the week. See all of the details in our latest blog post by following the link in our profile.

TSA is going to the @TheWebbyAwards May 14th to accept 3 #Webbys for this account! Webby acceptance speeches can only be 5-words long. That’s it. No more, no less. What should our #5WordSpeech be? Your comments are always brilliant, so hit us with your best ideas!

If you’re looking for that perfect electrifying shade of lipstick, this one’s a real knockout! Just don’t pack it in your carry-on bag, or you could get grounded.

This bedazzled 3-million-volt lipstick stun gun was discovered in a carry-on bag at the San Diego International Airport (SAN). Stun guns are not allowed to be brought onto the plane with carry-on items. They must be packed in checked baggage. Please familiarize yourself with local laws prior to packing because stun guns are illegal to own and possess in some states.

We bet you didn’t know that NASA sent a TSA Explosives Detection Canine into space, did you? No? Well, that’s because they didn’t. But a dog can dream right? This is Robin, and she works as an explosives detection canine with her handler at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). As you can tell from the pic, she’s out of this world! Happy Space Day!
