Bradley's chartered plane had to make an unexpected landing shortly after takeoff in St. Louis.
The pilot turned back to Lambert International Airport, after a cockpit light flashed.
There is no word on what the light indicated, only that the pilot didn't want to take any chances.
The plane landed safely and no one was injured.
Bradley was headed to Baltimore when the plane turned back.

Since September, more than 3-thousand workers have lost their jobs -- unemployment has sky rocketed to nearly 20 percent -- leaving a work force to sweat it out, in a town once dubbed the sweatshirt capital of the world.
