Quoting AirframeAS (Reply 6): Looking at the original pic, that is NOT a 735. Thats a 737NG. Look at the pitot tubes and the diameter of the engines and the landing gear skirt is more curved. Its not a 735.

Live in Phoenix. Earlier tonight I have had several clients attempt to set up flights in to the DEN area. The only info that I had was that BJC Jeffco may be opening up if weather permits. Weather has not been good but I have not been able to look up landings at BJC yet. We were able to get a Citation III into Grand Junction but that is very far from Denver.
By Christmas Day it should be all cleared up though. It should be fine.

Quoting Revelation (Reply 19): Slide 13 is interesting: an all-white, T-tailed aircraft with no engines. What's that thing doing at DIA?
That one has been there for several years at least...used to be painted in UAL colors...B727-200...I can't open the link on this comp but i'm pretty sure that's the one you're talking about, parked near the old CO hangar.
