It’s been a year since Californian holidaymaker Corinne Theile first stripped down to her bikini at Los Angeles International Airport in protest of ‘invasive’ security screening.
And to mark the anniversary, the 32-year-old returned to the airport in a two-piece once more, declaring that she’ll continue to do so even when she’s 80.
Corinne, dubbed the ‘Bikini Girl’, has worn her swimsuit on seven flights over the past 12 months in dispute of TSA full body scanners.
Miss Theile believes that the scanners release low levels of radiation and she said yesterday: ‘If I’m 80 and I can go through security in a bikini, I’ll do it.’ Instead of using TSA (Transportation Security Administration) security checks, which include the use of backscatter X-ray and millimetre wave detection, Corinne would rather wear her bikini so security officers can see she has nothing to hide.
