WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Mid-Continent Airport in Wichita plans to increase its security by installing four new X-ray machines.

Airport officials say they hope the new machines will speed security checks and reduce long waiting times at the airport, particularly in the mornings.

The installation will begin Friday. The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/OBRiAQ ) three of the machines are scheduled to be installed by Aug. 14, with the last operational by Aug. 22.

Keith Osborn, of the Transportation Security Administration in Wichita, says passengers should expect delays and some narrow walkways when during construction.
