Well this is a sad day in 'Hover board land'. Effective immediately the use of Hover Boards in the Buffalo Niagra Airport are band.

According to WRGZ, in an announcement posted online, the airport says:

"Effective immediately all Buffalo Niagara International Airport Airlines will not transport hoverboards in either checked luggage or as a carry on item.  Additionally, hoverboards (balance boards, gravity boards, self-balancing devices, etc.) are not allowed in the Buffalo Niagara International Airport terminal."

The announcement says the ban is due to concerns over the lithium batteries used in the boards.
