As far as I know nothing new.
Already some years ago during my yearly 'security-training' there were reports of woman carrying explosives in their breasts ! That was one of the reason's that you have to take of your coats and jackets when going through the detector

Gordon Bennet!!!

Is there no end to the unthinking idiocies that journalists can invent? Are they incapable of working out that you need rather more than simply explosives to create a bang? That you need detonators, trigger mechanisms, wires, timers etc etc.....

When the Telegraph has to resort to quoting the Sun [news]paper you know it's not exactly going to be Pulitzer material...

Agreed! Next they'll be banging on about an explosive tampon, simply light the string....

Flew out of CYQT on Monday, a small regional airport.

The only departure in the 75 mins I was there was our Metroliner; 18 seats I think, and I counted 5 empty seats.

The airport security area had two scanning machines open, both with 4 operators (loading / watching / examining) 3 people with magic wands and 1 checker in the exit area to stop people returning.... 12 people for 13 PAX.

Still took over 10 mins to get through it.

Could only think they were hosting some kind of regional training scheme or have some union agreement that dictates max capacity crewing at all times...

Collective IQ looked to be in the region of.... maybe 90.
