Whats A UA 767-200 Doing @ Stl?

I went to Lambert this morning to watch the late morning/early afternoon activity. I haven't been at the airport at those particular times in over four months, and I wanted to see if any different aircraft were there. Was I suprised.
At first what I thought was a UA 772 at the A concourse was a 767-200 of that same airline. It stayed at the gate for about 1.5 hrs. I really thought that it was going to depart for the fact that trucks were surrounding it and then the tug pushed it out. I managed to get the reg, N605UA, as it taxied to a spot in front of the Missouri ANG, rather than departure. Boy I was pissed off. Then I drove around to the cargo area and was suprised to see N391FL, a Contract Air Cargo CV-5800. I had no idea that it was a streched 580, and didn't know what it was initially. At Midcoast aviation, were more rare finds. A private 737 that I found out by looking up here, N368CE, was parked. I liked the green cheatlines on the fuselage. Also, was Rhoades Aviation CV-340, N154JR. This time, I knew the a/c was either a CV-340 or CV-580, but couldn't decide. Thankfully, airliners.net had a pic of it that gave me the type of a/c and operator. As I was leaving, a UA 757-200 landed over my car, N510UA. I was suprised for about the 5th time today! Who knows about the operator of that 737? Also, does Contract Air Cargo fly in every Saturday? The main question I have is about N605UA, the 762. For what reason do you think it was here? STL was served often by the 727. Could the 757 I saw land be a replacement a/c for the retired 727s? Has UA stepped up there STL service?

could have been a charter or an aircraft equipment swap. United does have a decent base in St. Louis... United does put some 757s in STL during the winter for flights to Denver (not in the schedule as they are irregular ops)...

As far as the contract air cargo (transauto callsign) convair, it was just probably a charter for the ford, chrysler, or g.m. plant bringing in car parts. That's why they usually come in here. Is the rhoades convair the silver one that's sitting on the air bp ramp? If so, it's been sitting there for over a week now.

What really suprised me about the 762 was that it was at an area where the smaller US airlines w/ small a/c park. (Concourse A) The gate the 762 was at seemed to be a new UA gate that could serve higher planes, maybe the 752s to DEN that SegmentKing mentioned. Anyways, to answer Learpilot here is a pic of the Contract Air Cargo CV-5800 N391FL, which looked more silver to me and was on the BP apron I believe

It doesn't appear that UA service to STL has increased. They only have 9 daily departures.

3 DEN 733 1x, 735 2x
6 ORD 320 2x, 733 4x

Perhaps the 762 was a last moment equipment change.

Do you happen to know what time it arrived @ JFK. I wanted to stay and watch it depart, but when I left it was still on the tarmac. Maybe it brought the Carolina Panthers in to play the Rams! Also, within the last months, I have seen an A320 N463UA, and A319, I think N828UA arriving later in the day.

The UA 762 made a precautionary landing after there was a report of smoke in the cockpit. Aircraft landed without incident.
