Drivers outside Boston along US interstate I-495 this week got a unique view of an iconic airplane that might very well belong in a museum.
For a short amount of time on October 10, a truck convoy carrying the fuselage of a rare Lockheed Constellation L-1649A Starliner was pulled over along the side of the highway to fix a flat tire.
Painted white and stenciled with a bright red "Trans World Air Lines" logo, the 60-year-old plane is heading to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, where it's expected to be converted into a one-of-a-kind bar and restaurant for the upcoming TWA Hotel.
There was a time when you were more likely to see this kind of plane flying overhead instead of in pieces on trucks along the side of the road.
In the 1950s, before the Jet Age of travel, the Lockheed's Constellation family of four-engine, propeller-driven airliners were the pinnacle of luxury for travel across the Atlantic and the US, from coast to coast.

A Beagle K-9 named "Hardy" was on duty at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport last Thursday when he sniffed out the two-pound pig's head in checked luggage.

Agents seized the illicit BBQ and destroyed it, after allowing Hardy to pose for a photo with his trophy.
(CNSNews.com) - On a typical day, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agriculture specialists intercept all kinds of banned items coming into the country, but rarely something like this: A roasted pig's head found in the luggage of a traveler from Ecuador.

Pork and pork products from other continents are among CBP's list of prohibited items, in this case, to prevent the introduction of swine-borne diseases.

Pets are getting roped into Halloween madness whether they like it or not, as more consumers are shelling out ever-climbing sums to costume their beloved animals. More than 30 million people will spend an estimated $480 million treating their pets to costumes this Halloween, more than double the $220 million spend on pet Halloween costumes in 2010 when the National Retail Federation began tracking pet costumes.
