Super Bowl--Super Security!

Posted:

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- This should be quite the sight! Some big hitters are going to the Super Bowl...and I'm not talking linebackers.

This Sunday, Black Hawk helicopters and truck-sized X-ray machines will be put to use to help secure the big game. U.S. Customs and Border Protection are showing off some of their heavy metal. The X-ray machines are mobile and the size of a large truck.

They're usually on the U.S.-Mexico border, scanning for contraband and explosives. The Black Hawks and other copters will be the eyes in the sky.

The big choppers will also be used to enforce the no-fly zone in the area around the University of Phoenix Stadium.
