The Transportation Security Administration plans to install full-body scanners at John Wayne Airport in the coming months, federal officials confirmed Tuesday.
Scanners are planned for all three terminals, including the new Terminal C set to open in November.
Travelers randomly selected to undergo the body scans can opt to walk through the traditional metal detectors and receive a manual pat-down instead.
A recent public backlash about the machines' graphic depictions prompted the TSA to change the images the scanners produce. The millimeter wave machines – the ones that are planned for JWA – now create generic images for all passengers.
