HONOLULU (AP) — An airline passenger flying out of Maui checked in with a weapon not often seen in baggage — the barrel of a cannon.
Transportation Security Administration officials confirm they spotted the cannon barrel last week in the checked luggage of a passenger at Kahului Airport.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the cannon barrel was found Oct. 20 in the checked bag of a United Airlines passenger traveling to San Francisco on a late evening flight.
The cannon wasn’t loaded.
The TSA says the passenger was cleared to fly but the airline made separate arrangements for transporting the cannon barrel.
