New X Ray trial at Manchester Airport

Hi folks,

All you leaving from Terminal 2 flying with Thomson Airways might be scanned by the new X Ray machine.

Quite a graphic picture.

If you are wondering of your dog swallowd your set of keys that have gone missing buy it a cheap ticket and take it through the svan... cheaper than a vet bill.

lol

Sorry having a bit of a laugh, thanks for informing us, guess it might make so wantme of us to remove the intimate piercing before flying out :)

I have a feeling there will suddenly be a very high demand for those jobs.

Can't you just see the likelihood of good looking people suddenly be seen as suspicious and needing to be put through that machine?

"Excuse me Ms. Joile, Mr. Pitt, we need you to step into the x-ray scanner. We have reason to suspect you're carrying a concealed weapon."

Give a show or get a grope, not sure I like either ! I haven't experienced that technology personally here in TO as of yet. I have too assume it's going to be a part of all our travels soon, the scanner of course.

Amy and Orion= too funny !
