(FOX NEWS) – This is one way to get yourself launched out of the airport.

A Florida man was caught at Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley International Airport on Monday trying to bring a military-grade rocket-propelled grenade launcher – grenade included – onto the flight in his checked bag.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checked the bag after it triggered an alarm and discovered the unassembled parts of the weapon — barrel, trigger, sights and grenade, a press release reported.

The St. Augustine, Fla., resident was detained by police for questioning.

However, officers quickly found that the grenade launcher was not a functioning weapon, but a replica. The man reportedly told officials he thought he could bring the item if it was in a checked bag.
