Solar-powered plane lands at Lambert Airport

Tuesday, 04 June 2013 02:17 Published in Local News

   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.

   Boeing employees will be heading back to work Tuesday morning after Friday's storms knocked out power to the Hazelwood facility, forcing it to close.  

   Some buildings were still in the dark Monday night, forcing the aerospace company to cancel work for many third shift employees overnight.  

   Company officials say that by 3:30 Tuesday morning, Ameren crews had restored power to all Boeing buildings.  First shift employees are expected to report to work.

 

   Kratz Elementary School in the Riteneour School District is closed due to the power outage in St. Ann.

   Riverview Gardens summer school classes have been cancelled for Monday, June 3rd.  The closure is due to storm damage and power outages to the districts four schools hosting summer school.

   The St. Louis Archdioceses School, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta in Ferguson, Mo. will also be closed on Monday, due to the lack of power from Friday’s storm.

   The Ferguson-Florissant school district is making changes to its summer programs, due to Friday’s storm damage to buildings and power outages.

   Monday’s summer classes at McCluer High School and Johnson-Wabash Elementary School have been cancelled.  Classes will resume on Tuesday, June 4th at the following locations:  Johnson-Wabash Elementary summer school will be held at Duchesne Elementary School, located at 100 South New Florissant Road.  McCluer High summer school will be relocated to McCluer North at 705 North Waterford Drive.  The districts other summer program, Adventure Camp; is being moved to Combs Elementary School located at 300 St. Jean Street in Florissant, effective Monday, June 3rd.
