Airports with body scanners
Airports with body scanners
Many thanks to Friendly Skies on Flyertalk for all the hard work . Please let us know it you find any other airports or train stations where full-body scanners are running.
ALL US Airports now using Full-Body Scanners.
You will need to consult the airport directly to know whether the airport in question uses backscatter X-ray scanners or Millimeter Wave scanners. Recently, the TSA has been reportedly replacing their Xray scanners with Millimeter Wave scanners with Automatic Threat detection (ATD) software that does not require a viewer. Blogger Johnathan Corbett proved the technology to be utterly useless when he filmed himself passing through this type of scanner with a metallic box in his pocket and not being detected.
