'Knight and Day': Reality Check
Airport insecurity? Cameron Diaz sneaks a pipe-bomb on an airplane in the new action comedy
Early in Knight and Day, Cameron Diaz’s auto mechanic wheels through airport security with a suitcase of carburetors and exhaust tips. But could you actually board a plane with potential pipe-bomb parts? Luckily, no. ”If something appears to be an explosive device, we will not clear the item,” says Transportation Security Administration spokesman Greg Soule. ”While a car part may not be specifically listed as a prohibited item, it could be considered a bludgeon item and not allowed.” We feel better already.
