I'm still laughing.


A St. Louis woman is being questioned after she sneaked onto the St. Louis Downtown Airport tarmac and broke into a corporate jet. It happened around 4 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Sauget Police Chief Patrick Delaney says the 38-year-old woman broke into a corporate jet because she said she wanted to fly to China. The FBI, TSA and Homeland Security are all investigating the incident.

The unnamed woman was able to get passed manned security gates in her vehicle before boarding the jet. Chief Delaney says she entered an unlocked corporate jet owned by a Hong Kong bank.

Once inside, Jet aviation employees apparently saw the woman attempting to start the plane, but the battery was disconnected due to maintenance.

The woman apparently has no criminal history, but police are concerned about her mental state.
