WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

All X-ray machines at Wilmington International Airport are back up in running Wednesday morning.

According to Gary Broughton with ILM, one of the airport's two X-ray machines went down between 4:30 and 4:45 a.m. Tuesday and would not start back up. This caused significant backups.

TSA Officials ask you still arrive two hours before your flight as a precaution.
