A wheelchair-bound Oklahoma woman stripped down to black lingerie to go through TSA airport security, twice. The first time she was questioned for more than an hour and ended up missing her flight.

Tammy Banovac, a retired dental surgeon, says she expected her wheelchair to set off metal detectors, but she figured by wearing only her lingerie she would be able to avoid a pat down. Apparently she was wrong.

The sexy, 52-year-old blonde, who posed for Playboy in 1997, arrived at the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City in her trench coat which she peeled off at Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security to reveal her sexy lingerie. She accessorized her sparse outfit with pearls and carried a white dog, for her flight to Phoenix.

The event was caught on video by a fellow passenger.

Banovac tells the Oklahoman newspaper she decided to modify her outfit after undergoing what she says was an uncomfortable and intrusive airport pat down last month.

"If it happened anywhere else, it would have been sexual assault," she says.




An airport spokeswoman tells the local CBS affiliate that Banovac, in her lingerie, refused to go through any metal detector at all, and opted for the pat down.

Security officers detected traces of nitrates on the wheelchair when they did the search. Nitrates are used to make explosives.

Branovac says she believes the traces may have been the result of medication. Or perhaps they were from a recent hunting trip, she says.

In any event, she missed her flight after more than an hour of searches and questioning.

The next day she went back to the airport, again in her lingerie, and got through security without a hitch.

Am I the only one that thinks it's odd that she uses a wheelchair but could have nitrates on her body as a result of a hunting accident. Something's fishy with this wheelchair riding porno tooth fairy

fellow readers; please refrain from reading or commenting on any story provided by the Huffington Post. you will now see a left-leaning aol since it purchased the crazy woman's media outlet. please, stand together and boycott all Huffington Post reports. their contributors support the likes of nancy pelosi, harry reid, barney frank and the entire obama administration. there will be no opportunity to read the facts and decide for youself; the government is making sure it's their way or the highway. join the fight.

Even though it was the TSA, it could still be sexual assault.

Her plan worked - how is that dumb? Because you don't like it? Why are you offended? Why do you care about her motives? How does it affect you? Dumb is getting wound up about things that have no bearing on your life.
