United Express ERJ 170 (Shuttle America)
Location: Denver, Colorado, USA
As I write this, the eastern United States is experiencing a major snowstorm that is wreaking havoc on air travel. This photo was taken earlier this month in another part of the U.S., during a different snowstorm. It is the season for snow!
This photo shows an Embraer ERJ 170 taxiing through the snow at Denver International Airport. This aircraft is operated by Shuttle America Corp. on behalf of United Express. I spotted it through the window of a gate in the airport's 'B' Concourse while we were waiting to board a different aircraft. Unabashed aviation geek that I am, I had to snap a few photos.
P. S. Planes departing Denver that morning had to be de-iced. Click here to see a couple of photos I took at the de-icing pad.
