"On several occasion, Fox2 discovered open and unattended perimeter gates that appeared to lead to the runways of Lambert St. Louis International Airport. When we alerted security, the Airport Police Chief said it was not a problem because of 'layered security.' Several months later, a homeless man reportedly walked through one of those gates and boarded an airplane. An airline employee found him sleeping on a plane."
After a summer storm blacked out the main terminal at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, the Airport Director asserted that the backup generators had recently been tested. But a KTVI investigation of city records discovered that maintenance workers did not test the generators, and had not even turned some of them on in months. As a result, the Director and the city's mayor held hearings that led to one termination and one disciplinary action.
