I'd never heard or seen this airline before it parked up in front of me! [Canon EOS 400D + Sigma 80-400]

I live in Colorado by the airport where this airline is based. They are based at the Centenial airport in Denver (KAPA). The airline is owned by an airline called Key Lime Air, which is based at the same airport and flies the same planes, except key lime flies cargo. They used to fly passengers but it didn't work out so they stuck with cargo.

The comment on 11/27/09 is almost right - "They used to fly passengers but it didn't work out so they stuck with cargo." Not quite... Denver Air Connection is owned by the same people who own Key Lime Air, but they are two separate companies. Key Lime has only ever done cargo (mostly UPS freight out of DIA), and Denver Air Connection runs the passenger flight between Denver and Grand Junction. As of this writing (1/3/10), they are still in operation 4 days a week, and attempting 121 certification.
