I heard the snowplow knocked the engine right off...any word whether it's a write off or will be fixed? Did the City of Gunnison just buy a 737-700
The 737NG is a very robust airframe. GOL drove one of theirs off the runway and crashed it through a stone wall, and managed to put it back into service. Engines are designed to sheer-off safely in the event of an uncontained failure or landing gear collapse, so long as there is no major wing/pylon damage I would expect the 73G to be ok...

I left out the -600 because it is not widely used, with SK being the only real major airline I can think of at the moment who flies it. They also fly the -700 and -800, but not the -900. Because of the low numbers of the -600 series sold, I don't believe any airline has possession of all the variants of the 737NG, including the -600.

I'm not so sure about this "incident"
Continental.com shows flights 1662 and 1663 operating normally the past few days. If it was hit by a snowplow in GUC, then 1663 to IAH most likely would have been cancelled (unless they had a spare 73G waiting there...). 1663 was only a few minutes late on Sunday 1/9 and Monday 1/10.

I don't know what it is with people and snow plows, at the airport I work at my boss. That's MY BOSS plowed into two different hangers while he was plowing the ramp. On one hanger he damaged the door so bad that it would not open, and on the other one he ripped of a 50' X 50' steel panel off the side of the hanger.
Airplanes are only as good as the people who fly&fix them.
