+ - Scary Toothbrush prompts shutdown of world's busiest airport->

Submitted by McGruber
McGruber (1417641) writes "The big buzz for travelers today is the story (http://www.ajc.com/news/news/local/atlanta-airport-closed-by-toothbrush/nTmqK/) of how a scary toothbrush prompted the closure of Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport: "Airport officials told Channel 2 Action News that an electric toothbrush began vibrating inside a bag checked onto an AirTran flight, causing workers to alert airport officials to the strange noise." The terminal and the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) subway were both temporary closed "out of an abundance of caution".

ATL has been the world's busiest airport by passenger traffic since 1998, and by number of landings and take-offs since 2005.["
