Amsterdam, Netherlands, May 15, 2007—You may be able to bring along a carryon and a personal item, but you won't be carrying any secrets when you board a plane in Amsterdam from now on.
Officials at the city's Schiphol Airport introduced a new security scanner this week that can see through clothing. The equipment uses low-energy radio waves to reveal travelers' body contours and enable security personnel to check for weapons and contraband.
Schipol is the first airport in the world to use the new technology, officials said, and there have been few complaints from travelers.
"People figure, if this is going to let me get through the lines quicker, then I'll do it," airport spokeswoman Miriam Snoerwang told the Associated Press.
