The flight, which originated in Las Vegas, was delayed an hour when a flight attendant found the fireworks under a seat, airline spokesperson Ashley Dillon told CNN.
Passengers, none of whom claimed the explosives, were removed from the plane. The aircraft was inspected and baggage was re-searched. Once the TSA gave the all clear, the flight was re-boarded and set off for Missouri.
The TSA will investigate how the fireworks got on to the plane.
Now, the question is, how did those rats on a a plane and the bat on a plane get past the TSA too?
