Denver International Airport

My first visit to DIA lasted less than ten minutes - the time it took me to run at full speed from the arrival gate to the departure gate.

If it had been any farther, I'd have missed the plane, thanks to United Express for leaving Madison 90 minutes late. Grrrr.

Various United Airlines jets and the Rockies. The one with its tail sticking out is probably the plane I caught to Seattle. Note that the cargo trailer is already empty.

Pulling out in the 757. Air Canada and several United planes. The one on the far right, with the yellow cargo conveyor, is the plane that brought me from Madison.

More miscellaneous United jets.

I guess we blinked first- the smaller jet never had to turn.

A United 757 - same model I was in. I was in the 2nd exit row over the wing, window seat. Best seat in coach. Acres of legroom and a window view.
