Cool Official Flyers Thread

I'm picking up my girlfriend at the airport tomorrow, and figured I could arrive a few minutes early to pass out some flyers.

I know there are other flyers out there, and I thought I'd add to them. My flyers are below in PDF and docx format (use the PDF if you just want to look/print, and the docx if you want to modify and make your own). If you've found or made other flyers that you like, post them in the reply.

Most importantly, if each time one of us were at an airport we handed out flyers as we walked through the terminal or as we waited for our flight, we could make a big difference. So print out a few dozen and bring them with you!

Excellent job. However for purposes of scientific accuracy, I have to point out that the MMW scanners do not use "sound" waves. They use electromagnetic (EM) waves (radiation) just like the backscatter x-ray scanners do. However it is EM radiation of quite a different wavelength: 1012 mm (millimeters, one-thousandth of a meter) for the L-3 machines, according to what I found online. By way of comparison, cell phones operate at wavelengths approximately 10 times larger (e.g., 12 cm = 120 mm, for 2.5 GHz frequency). I have not been able to find data for the wavelength that the Rapiscan backscatter x-ray scanners operate at, but by definition, x-ray wavelengths range from 0.0110 nm (nanometers, one-billionth of a meter). But both types of scanners are using electromagnetic radiation.
