Passengers aboard a flight bound from St. Louis to Washington on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks had to make a return to the gate after crew became concerned about something found on the plane.
The Transportation Security Administration says GoJet Airlines flight 3681, a regional carrier for United Airlines, was still on the runway Sunday when it returned to the gate. A TSA spokesman says all passengers were re-screened at the request of the pilot. Nothing was found and the plane departed.
If you find yourself picking up friends family or co-workers from Lambert-St. Louis International airport frequently, starting Monday you'll have a new place to spend those last few minutes before you're reunited with your jet-setting associates.
A new cellphone lot will open Monday at the airport. Motorists can park for free in the lot while waiting for incoming flight passengers to land.
Lambert already has one cellphone lot, but the new parking place is in response to what airport officials call a "positive trend" for the airport.

The cost to repair tornado damage at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport could reach as much as $30 million.
Airport officials said Wednesday they've received estimates of $25 million to $30 million to restore Terminal 1 and Concourse C following the April 22 tornado.
The airport said it expects the total bill to be even higher, when its insurance company finishes calculating costs for the interruption of business, lost revenues and emergency repairs that were made.
