Suspicious Bag on Flight Was “Just a Test Device”

A suspicious piece of luggage that was about to be loaded onto a flight in Namibia was a “test device” from a U.S. company that tests alarm and security systems.

From CNN:

An official with the U.S. Transporation Security Administration said Friday that they are working with German and Namibian authorities to determine the origin of the device and the reason it was being transported on the plane.

“We applaud the vigilance of the aviation security authorities who discovered the device and took quick action to ensure that it did not pose a threat to the aircraft and passengers,” the TSA official told CNN.

The discovery of the bag at Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport in Namibia delayed flight 7377 to Munich, Germany on Wednesday and raised security concerns, a spokeswoman for the airline, Air Berlin, said Thursday.
