LEE COUNTY, FL - Travel for the Thanksgiving holiday begins this weekend according to officials at SW Florida International Airport. With that, travellers can expect heightened security at the airport here and their final destination. Many are complaining that the T.S.A.'s body scan machines, which allows agents to see through clothing and the physical "pat down" method of screening are too intrusive.

But travel experts we talked to say with terror threats on the rise, security measures have to increase as well to keep the flying public safe.
