Ozarks First: 'Suspicious Device' at Springfield Airport Turns Out to be Voltage Adaptor Kent Boyd, spokesman for the airport, says around 12:30 p.m. TSA inspectors came across a device they thought was a pipe bomb. "That brought the entire inspection process to a halt," he says. "The administrative offices were evacuated because they're right over that room. And the fire department, City of Springfield Bomb Squad were called. They determined it was a voltage regulator, for taking overseas so you can plug in your hairdryer." Got the :vomit:bags at the ready? Boyd says the situation highlights the purpose of TSA. "This really illustrates how cautious you have to be. Even though this wasn't a pipe bomb, you can't fault anyone for ringing the alarm. In this day and age, with terrorism going on across the world, you can't be too careful."Oh, yes you can.
