The federal government has mandated that there be explosive trace detection machines in all U.S. airports by January first.
The equipment will be used to screen all checked baggage for explosives.
Roanoke Regional Airport has six machines located in the lobbby and plans to begin using them on Tuesday.

[SOT 23:25]
[IN Q=When they come]

((BOB SCHENKEL/FEDERAL SECURITY DIRECTOR: WHEN THEY COME TO CHECK-IN HERE AT THE TICKET COUNTER HERE IN THE LOBBY AFTER THEY CHECK IN THEY WILL BE TAKING THEIR BAG TO A EXPLOSIVE TRACE STATION WHERE OUR SCREENER WILL EXAMINE IT. IT WOULD SPEED THINGS UP IF THE PASSENGERS WOULD HAVE THEIR BAGGAGE UNLOCKED BEFORE THEY GET TO THE TRACE DETECTION STATION.))

In Roanoke, you will be required to be there when you're baggage is screened.

((JACQUELINE SHUCK/AIRPORT DIRECTOR: THE OTHER MAIN PROBLEM IS THE CURRENT TOWER HAS VISIBILITY ISSUES WHERE SOME OF THE BUILDINGS ARE IN THE WAY WHERE SOME OF THE BUILDINGS ARE IN THE WAY OF WHERE YOU WOULD SEE AN AIRCRAFT TAXING. THE NEW TOWER WILL HAVE A VIEW EVERY SINGLE PART OF THE PAVED SERVICE OF THE AIRPORT SO THEY'LL BE ABLE TO SEE THINGS SO IT'S SOMEWHAT OF A SAFETY ISSUE.))
