The steel structure is still intact and the rest is gone. Jet fuel may burn very hot, that is true, but i highly doubt it burns hot enough to melt steel.
Q: Do security officials hope to use the full-body scanners on every person getting on a flight?
A: At the moment, that's probably not realistic - in the U.S. alone, there are 730 checkpoints with 2,100 security lanes at the nation's 450 airports, and there are thousands more lanes at airports around the world. Cost may be an issue - the machines can be $US130,000 ($149,000) to $US200,000 each.
Taking Amsterdam, where the machines are already in place, as an example: The airport's 15 scanners won't be enough to screen every US-bound passenger, so pat-down searches will still be used. It remains to be seen whether that strategy will be copied at other airports.
