In U.S. airports set pozherateley money Krivoy Rog!

It's no secret that the U.S. government can be a huge source of expense.

In 2004, the Department of Homeland Security U.S. interest acquired 207 machines for security scanners to be installed in various airports.

Each machine costs $ 160,000, and despite this insane price, they break pretty regularly. For example, simple things like dirt, moisture can lead to unusable. As a result, the annual operating costs of less than $ 50,000 cost (per car).

Complete loss of $ 33 million.

Worst of all, only 94 of these expensive devices were actually commissioned to protect passengers – the rest are still in stock in anticipation of placing airports, that will never happen.

I hope that they can get a good price for them on Ebay, hough I doubt it. Or such modern devices acquire Ukrainian deputies.

Scrapping the program will not disturb too much of the TSA, they are going to spend about $ 50 million for these great new full image scanners.
