Description

Photograph dated Feb. 22, 1940. Original caption reads: "The Snow King Rotary Plow operated by the Walter Snow Fighter Truck blowing heavy frozen snow on the shoulder of the Burlington Municipal Airport runways. Both the north-south and the east-west runways were opened for a width of 250 feet and for a length of 3,600 feet after each storm, the snow being plowed back into windrows from which it is blown as seen in the picture. A total of sixty-six hours work with the Rotary Plow was necessary to dispose of the entire amount of snow accumulated on the two runways, taxi-strip and hangar areas over the period from February 11, 1940 to February 22, 1940, inclusive, during which time the Weather Bureau reported a total snow fall of 11.8 inches, some of which was combined with several hours of rain and a lowering of the temperature to sub-zero weather.
