A buzzing sex toy was mistaken for a bomb on a Thai AirAsia flight to Bangkok from Chiang Mai International Airport on Wednesday morning (Sep 28).
According to The Star via AsiaOne, the vibrator caused panic among staff when they heard a loud humming as they were loading a green rucksack onto the plane
The baggage handlers immediately radioed for bomb disposal experts who rushed to the runway.
Thankfully, they discovered that the sound had come from a silver vibrating bullet.
The vibrator's speed dial had accidentally been turned on.
A baggage handler recounted what happened:
"We noticed the bag was shaking and there was a buzzing noise coming from inside.
"Obviously we were pretty scared because this could have been a bomb or some other explosive device.
"But when the experts arrived they opened up the package and it was just a sex toy.
"The passenger is unaware that their bag caused a security alert.
"I think they would be deeply embarrassed if they found out."
The flight was delayed by just five minutes.
A Thai AirAsia spokesman said that the airline did not confiscate the item as it did not threaten aviation security.
