Blue Grass Airport Installs Scanners

Body scanners at Blue Grass Airport will replace metal detectors as the primary passenger screening method. The "advanced imaging technology" scanners are being installed and workers are being trained this week. Some passengers might go through them later this week, but the new machines should be fully operational at the Lexington airport by early next week, said Jim Fotenos, Transportation Security Administration spokesman.
