That's a bent wing spar, and that plane is probably done for good

Next time DIA and UA would be better off to go with Ogden, UT based FMC-Jetway.
DIA did not want these automated jet bridges as they were skeptical of their reliability due to their complexity.
It was United that insisted on retrofitting five of the gates with these jet bridges and financed them themselves since the airport wasn't willing to do it.
DIA has plenty of FMC Jetways. Infact, two of the five jet bridges that were replaced with these new DewBridge automated dual jet bridges were FMC Jetways that were relatively recently installed. The other three were Stearns jet bridges that the city was planning to replace with FMC Jetways eventually.
