Officials at the Greater Binghamton Airport say the traveling public apparently needs to be reminded that there are still plenty of things that can not be taken onto airplanes.

The Transportation Security Administration in Broome County displayed dozens of items confiscated at check points to reporters.

Banned, potential weapons rage from apparently mundane things like corkscrews to fairly large knives and brass knuckles.

Some things, like knitting needles, can be transported in checked bags, but cannot be taken into the cabin.

Officials say information on items that are banned can be found on the TSA website or their app called My TSA.
