Lexington airport to get full-body scanners

Kentucky Press News Service

The current security scanning equipment at Lexington's Bluegrass Field Airport will soon be replaced with full-body scanners similar to those at the nation's largest airports.

"If it's going to keep everybody safe, keep the plane in the air, yeah, I wouldn't mind doing it," passenger Joe Morrison told WKYT-TV. "I got nothing to hide."

Other passengers said they had already experienced the full-body scanners in other airports around the nation and preferred the scanners over the traditional pat-down method of checking passengers before they board.
