   The Solar Impulse is on the ground at Lambert Airport.  

   The solar-powered airplane took off Monday morning from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport bound for St. Louis -- some 560 miles away.  The plane landed at Lambert about 1:30 Tuesday morning.

   The project was aimed at building a solar-powered airplane that could fly day and night without fuel.   They succeeded with a 21-hour 21-minute flight to St. Louis, the longest so far for Solar Impulse.  

   The storms that swept through St. Louis Friday night damaged a hangar that was going to house the plane while at Lambert, and that created another opportunity for the Solar Impulse team.  They deployed the plane's own inflatable hangar for the first time during a mission. The revolutionary, ultra-light structure was designed for use during their planned flight around the world in 2015.

UPDATE:
Learjet landed safely at Lambert Airport just after 1:30 PM. No visible damage to plane. Emergency crews on scene to examine plane. EARLIER:
Lambert Airport is preparing for the emergency landing of a Learjet that is reporting disabled landing gear.

The plane had been circling Parks Airport in Cahokia. The pilot of the plane alerted the tower of a problem just after 12 o'clock, and the tower in turn notified the fire department. An employee of Parks Airport, and she confirms 8 passengers are on board the plane, which she believes was heading for St. Louis.

Apparently the jet is experiencing problems with the landing gear...the nose gear to be more specific...its having problems extending the nose gear underneath the front of the Learjet.

In situations like these, the airport will handle these emergencies on a case-by-case basis.

ST. LOUIS -- The Transportation Security Administration is apologizing after agents at Lambert Airport in St. Louis sought to screen a 3-year-old girl in a wheelchair.

The mother of the child shot video that caused a stir in social media after it was posted online. The incident happened Feb. 8. The girl and her family were about to fly to Disney World in Orlando, Fla. A TSA agent asked to pat down the 3-year-old and screen her wheelchair. The agent initially told the girl’s mother, Annie Schulte, it was illegal to tape the activity. On the video, the little girl, Lucy, who has spina bifida, is seen crying.

Agents eventually decided against a pat-down.

The TSA says it regrets the incident and will address concerns with its workers.
