A New Jersey woman flying to San Francisco to attend an explosives demonstration packed three shrapnel-filled landmines for the occasion.

The TSA was not amused when she was screened at Newark Liberty International Airport.

While the landmines did not contain any actual explosives, replicas are also banned from planes.

The woman was allowed to catch the next flight, but without the mines.
