Football fans flying to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII will be packing a lot of enthusiasm, but they'd better not haul pickaxes, air horns or flasks of booze.
And if you're bringing a live raven, check with out your airline's pet policy before getting to the airport.
That is the warning issued Friday by the Transportation Security Administration to fans of the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens flying to the big game.
Air horns are prohibited in carry-on bags and in checked bags because of a TSA ban on compressed-air canisters on planes. The same goes for propane tanks used to cook at tailgate parties.
Because sharp objects are prohibited, gold-mining tools such as picks and shovels also are not allowed on planes, the TSA warned. (The 49ers, of course, were named for the gold prospectors who flocked to Northern California during the Gold Rush around 1849.)
