Nice work, FS.

Folks,

The OP offered to maintain a list of airports with NoS and we're happy to have this type of up-to-the-minute info complied for the benefit of all. Please send thanks/brickbats by PM for the sake of neatness.

We'll now sticky this thread for convenience ...

"BWI - A,B,D concourse no way to avoid them but not primary"


At times they are primary. B concourse last week we had no choice and everyone had to go through them. It was such slow going that bags were falling off the rollers after being screened,since their owners were still in line to be screened.

If they are going to use them, they need to find a way to speed up the process.

Per TSA Chief Pistole's remarks, please remove this thread immediately (it is injurious to the Homeland).

Quote:
What I don't want to see happen is terrorists going on a website and seeing where there is AIT and where there's walk-through metal detectors and using, like on Christmas Day, a non-metallic explosive device through one of those airports that does not have AIT. So that's my concern. So we'll see how that all resolves.

I was going to suggest that the sticky be renamed "Terrorist's Guide to Finding Airports Without WBI."

MSY

They just added a millimeter-wave NoS at MSY. I'm not sure if it has gone live yet but it is installed.

A friendly reminder: Please PM info about airports to me, rather than posting it in this thread. Thanks!

I am more convinced than ever our leadership is the #1 Danger To The Homeland.

I think that the TSA could soon award a contract to a third supplier. Currently, L-3 Communications supplies the millimeter wave scanners, while Rapiscan Systems supplies the backscatter x-ray scanners.

I know Smiths Detection (infamous for those "puffer machines" that have recently been removed due to malfunctions) has introduced their own millimeter wave scanner, but the TSA hasn't deployed their version yet.
