A Forgotten Video: St. Louis Airport 2001

Host: Gregory McKinnon

VIdeographer: Paul Kiel

Location: St. Louis, Missouri - July/August 2001

This video was produced during summer of 2001. We got information through Deaf Digest about a Deaf traveler unhappy about St. Louis Airport lacking services for Deaf. We decided to look into it. We were at airport few times in July and August 2001. Then it was in final production and released on September 7, 2001.

The world changed on September 11, 2001. (four days later)

Not sure if anything has improved since then. I did write letter to director of airport to express concerns. No one listened! Not sure if it has been followed up!

Oh, heck! With today's technology, ttys are becoming obsolete. Not sure if videophones are in yet.

The open system at airports are forever CLOSED!
