Things not to do at an airport on the 10th anniversary of 9/11

D/FW AIRPORT — A truck loaded with pyrotechnics prompted a security incident that had a lot of people on edge at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport just after one o’clock Sunday afternoon, the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Police said a stunt performer picking up a passenger left his Penske rental truck unattended outside Terminal B.

Officials were concerned because the truck — which had an SUV on a trailer hitched behind it — was parked adjacent to a gate where 200 U.S. military personnel were being welcomed from Afghanistan.

Part of the road in front of the terminal was closed off as a precaution, and the bomb squad was brought in to investigate.

Officers found several weapons inside the truck in addition to the pyrotechnics.

Police said the driver — who works for a Discovery Channel reality show called “Sons of Guns” — cooperated with authorities and was not charged.
