Wired's transportation safety gallery

Wired Magazine visited the Homeland Security Stakeholders SI Conference and snapped some photos of a transportation security display.

This is a replica of a nitroglycerin bomb that Ramzi Yousef used in an attempt to destroy Philippine Airlines flight 434. The bomb detonated and killed a passenger, but failed to take the plane down.

This shoe-bomb is an accurate copy of Richard Reid's footwear. The terrorist was subdued by passengers after attempting to ignite his shoes.
