The cause of a major security incident was revealed which occurred last Friday at an international airport in Polk County, Florida.
Lakeland Linder International Airport was scene of an emergency evacuation when a contractor opened a shipping container to find a massive guided missile inside.
Local news reports indicated that airport personnel had no idea how this live missile ended up at a major civilian airport, only that the container also had parts of an aircraft inside and that the shipment belonged to Draken International, a US defense contractor based in the area.
Although it’s not unheard of that shipping containers belonging to defense firms might have inert missiles in them, in this instance the missile had a “live” warhead.
