About these scanners. Adelaide, South Australia only has old type. So on Sunday I take daughter to catch a flight and after reading here that it is no big deal to go through scanner I though I would just do it. I had my card in my hand ready to explain in case I 'beeped'. A female officer stopped me, asked if I had a pacemaker. She then said I could not walk through and would have to have the 'pat down' (which I have always had previously.) She told me that they had had many problems with people and pacemakers going through the scanner so it was now policy that no one would be allowed. Doesn't bother me to have a pat down, but I thought I would just let you all know.
