Flew back home Monday from Indianapolis and, of course, the hip set off the metal detector. So, I was invited to step into a body scanner they have there. The whole thing went smoothly, they got the green light signaling that I was ok, and off I went. The checkpoint at Indy is pretty roomy, so they have space for the machines and it worked great.
My wife was also invited to use the machine, though she has her original hips. She also reports that it was a good experience, especially when I explained that the images are viewed by someone who cannot see her and they are not stored. Feeling secure is very important to her, and she is someone who has good old middle American common sense. So, the scanner machines passed the “Ann Principato test,” a tough test indeed. (Yes, I know, some of you can’t believe that I passed her test.)
I can also tell you that the concessions program in Indy’s new terminal is terrific. We patronized Wolfgang Pucks, Borders, Relay and the spa they have right next to the popcorn stand. We have also previously eaten at Champs. Very nice, passenger friendly, terminal.
