Not sure if I'm a fan or not - I'm all for better security but I really don't want a stranger to see me naked :scared1:

What does everyone else think? :confused3

Lol :teeth:

It's not as if you are naked, it is only the profile of your body.

I'm fine with it. Not having to faff around with taking off coats/belts/shoes should mean those nasty security lines get a bit better. The pictures themselves don't look that bad, it's not as if the faces are distinguishable. Besides, the article says that passengers can refuse the scan if they want, but then I'd definitely rather have the scan than a security officer's hands all over me!

Been on Sky news all morning, shows you what you can see. I would have no problem with it but anyone that has can still go the traditional way for the years trial.

Fine by me, if it makes flying safer Im all for it. Though when I read the thread title I did think we were all going to have to strip off in security which I wouldnt be so keen on !

I heard recently suicide bombers have started to actually hide the bombs inside their bodies would this show these up ?

Secondly I would not want to go into a scanner knowing that someone could see me naked someone elsewhere in the airport.
Think i best phone gok wan before our next hols so he can show me how to look good naked :rotfl2::rotfl2:

Wow! I like the idea of this, it would probably make me feel a lot safer on the flight because it clearly shows if anybody is hiding anything!

What about children though? Not sure about the idea of that because that article says you can see outlines of private parts so :confused3 Or would kids not be allowed through it?

If it means that these brainwashed idiots are stopped from causing problems with suicide bombs then so be it.

As far as I am concerned everyone will have to go through the scanners.

Anyone who thinks that these idiots only use adults for their bombs is living in a complete dream world.

The incident in Saudi Arabia a few weeks ago was 13 years old!!!

Well, I didn't mean that children shouldn't be scanned. I mean, if I had a child that I personally would not feel comfortable with some man looking at naked outlines of my childrens genitals...

ETA - I just found this on the Sky News site, "The airport has now said that no under-18s will be allowed to use the device unless it can clarify the law on indecent images of children." So I guess kids won't be allowed through!

Hi

Surely these people will be CRB Checked?

If it means that it helps with everones safety then I would certainly let my two DD be scanned.

I would be happy going through the scanner after spending an age at Sanford airport last week taking off bags, putting them back on, taking off coats, putting them back on etc with me being the only adult.

However I would not be happy that some stranger will see my children's naked profiles. I don't care if they are CRB checked, all that means is the paedophiles out there that have been CRB checked haven't done anything (yet) or they haven't been caught. It means nothing.

There are millions of monsters in the world that have not been caught yet and I would not allow my children's naked images to be seen by strangers. If this goes through my children will not be going on holiday again until they themselves can give their permission.

As it said it is a trial, so nothing cast in stone. Sorry if it upsets you re your kids but what is the point of bringing something like that in if it is not going to scan EVERYONE irrespective of age!!

Oh well this is certainly different! Goodness help people who have intimate piercings or have had their breasts enlarged!! :lmao:

In all fairness though, I don't think I'd mind as long as it was clear that the image is deleted almost immediately after I'd gone through the scanner and that the person in the room was in there alone, with no other communication devices, such as a mobile or internet usage.

I agree that children also shouldn't have to be placed through the machine, that in my eyes would be wrong.

Yes agree everyone needs to use it otherwise some extreme terrorist is going to use a child as a 'tool' to get a 'device' through the check :( Surely an image is better than a child being touched and searched?

I would feel more comfortable with this I think and its not like you really look naked or anything, its just an outline not like its porn or anything! After having an incident a couple of years ago when I was pulled aside and frisked by a rather butch heavy handed security woman, I would much rather go through this scanner - I'd been pulled aside and frisked before but that time I felt violated:eek:! I can completely understand the concerns that parents are having and that does make me feel slightly uncomfortable - but is it that different to a normal medical scan? I think they would have to be CRBed. Anyway, guys seriously we are all beautiful human beings and we should all love our bodies and celebrate our wondrous nakedness :hippie: lol.

I think it's a great idea! I'm all for 100% non privacy in airports.

Who cares if someone sees me naked or watches me having a wee, if it means that if someone were trying to smuggle something under their clothes, or put a bomb in the bathroom they got stopped.

These people will jsut be looking at such images all day, the same as doctors have to look at naked people all day, I'm pretty sure the novelty wears of pretty fast!

I would welcome this, as I'm unable to go through the metal detecters due to having a pacemaker, I always get pulled aside and frisked by security.

I would much rather go through this scanner, then been pulled aside and frisked and the family are always waiting for me at the other with all my bits and bobs.

I can completely understand the concerns that other parents are having but I do think everyone should go through them.

Quite agree, I would feel very uncomfortable being on a flight where only the adults had been adequately screened.

If anyone inapropriate was doing the screening I am sure that the sticky keyboard after they had been working would soon be a give away :rotfl2:

I am all for it, adult, child we all have the same body outline which is what they will see. When I walk though I am sure the tech's experience will be more traumatic than mine will be (OK, maybe I need to work harder on my diet! lol) If it makes travel safer then I think it is a great thing. Speaking as someone who has worked back stage at a theatre and has seen many, many people stripping off for a quick dress change (inc the blokes who were dames in a panto; yeah I towelled the sweaty bloke in the stage bra and dress!!) you really don't look at the image in front of you in detail other than what you need to see.

I honestly think that with so many people going through every day, nobody looks at the images as a "body" if you know what I mean. I don't really want people to see my "profile", but I don't think I will stand out any more than the next person from the hundreds going through before and after me!

I'm also all for anything that makes us safer. They aren't looking at the bodies - they are looking specifically for certain things that indicate a problem. I imagine there would be fewer false alerts this way as well, which will be a help!

lol, after giving birth to 2 children and one of those times had a whole load of student doctors looking at me during the process, all hints of shyness have got blown straight out of the window. I just don't care.

As it improves security I am all for it.
