Ever had the nightmare of losing your luggage when flying? I guess my fear is not flying, it's losing your luggage that would make me mad. I was talking to a guy one day at the airport and asked him what do they do if they can't locate the person who lost their luggage. He said, probably will wind up at the Unclaimed Baggage Center in Alabama.Can you imagine some of the items collected are pretty weird stuff. Not to mention it would make a pretty amazing thrift store. I have always been fascinated that some people just don't care about re-claiming their items.

I've posted a list of some bizarre stuff found at the Unclaimed Airline Baggage Center below.


-Gucci suitcase filled with ancient Egyptian artifacts.

-A rattlesnake. Yes. A snake on a plane.

- A $250,000 guidance system belonging to the U.S. Navy.

A Barbie doll stuffed with $500 in cash.

-A suit of armor.

- A 300-year-old violin.

-An ordinary-looking sock, which contained a 5.8-carat diamond set in a platinum ring.

- A camera designed for the Space Shuttle.

- A 40.95-carat natural emerald.
