At Logan Airport, they were training some new dogs on detecting explosives. As part of their practices, they attached half a pound of Semtex to the bumper of a maintenance truck. All well and good.
But someone didn’t tell all the concerned parties about the exercise. A maintenance worker came along, hopped in the truck, and drove off without being observed — and with the explosives still stuck to the bumper.
Good news: no one has been hurt.
Bad news: the explosives apparently fell off the truck somewhere.
Good news: Semtex is very stable, and needs a blasting cap to detonate — and none was with it.
Bad news: officials STILL haven’t found it.
Your tax dollars at work, folks. I’m SO glad that when I travel, I fly out of Manchester airport.
