Full Body Scanner Now at Logan

3/09/2010 12:02:00 AM
So according to the Globe, the first full body scanner to be used at airports in the US came to our fair city and is, as of yesterday, in use at Logan.  I don't have any flights planned for at least a month (thank goodness) and don't really have the desire to take the blue line all the way out there and back just to see it so I'm going to have to take their word for it for now.

The first of 450 controversial full-body scanners to be deployed at airports around the country this year will be put into use at Logan International Airport on Monday.  About 120 passengers went through one of the machines at Logan’s Terminal A as part of a test yesterday.

Logan has received three machines, which scan passengers’ bodies for weapons and explosives beneath their clothing using low-level X-ray beams, and the airport is expected to have more than a dozen in place at three terminals by the end of the summer.

Ok I take that back, looks like I'll have to wait until the end of the summer to see the scanner. I never fly out of terminal A.
