The owner of the bag, a man from Texas, said it was a souvenir from Kuwait.

The airport’s Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) spokeswoman, Lisa Farbstein, in a message on Twitter, said the man explained that he had returned the missile launcher as a souvenir from Kuwait.

“He should have brought back the key chain,” Farbstein said.

The ammunition launcher was detected during the bag inspection process early this morning.

The TSA said in a statement that the man who lived in Jacksonville, Texas told his officer that he was still serving in the military.

“Fortunately, it’s not a live device. However, the missile launcher was seized and handed over to the fire department for destruction.

“The man was later allowed to board the plane,” the TSA said.
