Description

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.
