I was recently traveling through St. Louis (this was the same time when I spotted the Condor 767) and before being at the airport, I was very interested in something: The history of STL. I’m not going to get to in depth, but you can read more Here. TWA had a very large presence in STL up until the late 90’s until they went bankrupt.
After American bought TWA, they decided to make STL a relief hub for Chicago. Well, that didn’t last long. Today American only had a few destinations out of STL. The only thing that really keeps the airport alive today is Southwest, and the only thing that really keeps it an International airport is Air Canada Express and Frontier with flights to CUN. Long story short, TWA went bankrupt, STL became virtually deserted after a few years, and it deserted Concourse B and D with it. Concourse D is what I’m mainly focused on here. It hasn’t really been used except for a few years ago when the airport temporarily used it during remodeling of other concourses. Today, it would need a large remodel in order to be used due to its outdatedness, lack of jet bridges, etc. Now, I think you’ll see what I mean by “mysterious” when you see these pictures. These first are not mine. They are from online and from this website that claims the concourse is haunted.
I think you get the point, but kinda creepy, right?
Here are mine:
My flight was departing from gate E31, one of the new ones right next to the D concourse. Anyway, I just think this is an interesting topic. Sorry if it was boring…
P.s., if you are interested in this, a similar topic is Concourse A at MSY. It’s very similar.
