   Today is one of the busiest days of the year at Lambert St. Louis International Airport.  Operation Block Leave, will send thousands of troops from Fort Leonard Wood through the airport today as they head home for the holidays.  And they'll pass through the James S. McDonnell USO along the way.  
   This year, as in every year, the USO and area businesses have teamed up to throw them a big party.  
   Former Marine and Iran Embassy hostage, Rocky Sickmann was there, representing one of the sponsor, Anheuser-Busch.  
   Sickmann told Fox 2 News that the sacrifices our military personnel make for the sake of our freedom shouldn't be forgotten, especially at the holidays. "This USO here, is a small way for us to say thank you, as they go back home to enjoy their holiday season," Sickmann said.
   The soldiers arrived at the airport to find food, music and other comforts as they wait for their planes home.

Lindbergh plane lands at Lambert again

A bit of history has returned to St. Louis. A small airplane once owned by Charles Lindbergh is now back on display at Lambert Airport.

Officials from the Missouri History Museum spent hours over the weekend installing the 1934 D-127 Monocoupe aircraft, which hangs once again over the C Concourse in Terminal 1.  

The museum also installed a new interactive kiosk near the plane that displays the history of Lambert and Lindbergh. The plane was originally installed at Lambert in 1979.  It was removed in March 2011 as part of terminal renovations.

Lambert officials say that over the years, the plane accumulated dust and other airborne pollutants so a conservation effort was necessary to make sure the plane was preserved.

A private jet company's plans to move onto Lambert Airport's grounds could create as many as 100 jobs.

Jet Linx plans to operate out of a private terminal and hangar that had been used by the Missouri Air National Guard. The company will pay $1 million to lease the land. Jet Linx officials also plan to invest another $1 million into renovations and will buy $3 million in jet fuel every year. The new jobs will range from construction to pilots.

Something new flying at Lambert...bees

   Lambert Airport will soon have some new tenants...bees.  

   The St. Louis Airport Authority has approved a three-year lease with Robins Apiaries to keep bee hives on a 400 square foot patch of land near a seldom-used runway. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the airport will collect $75 a year in rent from 76 year old beekeeper Jim Robins.  

   A plentiful supply of white dutch clover blooming near billion dollar W-1-W project runway drew Robins to the site.  The runway opened in 2006, but hasn't seen much traffic since TWA filed for bankruptcy and American Airlines yanked hub status away from Lambert.

   Lambert will be the third major US airport to host bee hives.  Chicago's O'Hare International and Seattle-Tacoma International both have significant bee operations.
