Oh, they did....

BWI was unofficially renamed "Ice Station Zebra" during that 2002 storm, but I suspect that name is more readily applicable to DEN at the moment...

According to flightaware, a CO 735 was the last plane to take off from DEN. That might be it.

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.

Thanks for sharing that link. Pretty impressive pictures that they captured of the snow removal.

The airport is still NOTAM'd closed until 19z today. Wonder how many airplanes will lined up waiting to go at that time?!

Slide 13 is interesting: an all-white, T-tailed aircraft with no engines. What's that thing doing at DIA?

since it is/was a 727 it is saving even more fuel - from 3 engines to no engines must save more than from 2 to none  Smile

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.
