Denver Broncos fans hoping to get a glimpse when the team plane lands in Denver Monday afternoon can do so, but there won't be much to see other than a plane in the distance or a bus zooming by.

The Broncos' charter flight is expected to touch down at Denver International Airport at 3:30 p.m. and there will be no public access to the newly crowned National Football League champions.

United Airlines spokeswoman Mary Clark said only media will be allowed at the hangar when the plane arrives from Northern California.

"There is no way for the public to be involved," she said.

People can still head to the airport to see the Broncos land and make their way to Dove Valley, said Heath Montgomery, a spokesman for Denver International Airport.

Montgomery said people should park in the final approach waiting lot if they want to get a glance at the plane. However, that is one of the most difficult places to see planes landing, he said.

As for lining Peña Boulevard, fans can do so as well, Montgomery said, but need to be completely off the road in a safe location.

"We recognize a lot of people are interested and want to see the team," he said.

At Dove Valley, fans are already lining up outside the facility to see Peyton Manning, Von Miller and the rest of the team when they arrive.

Among those waiting were José Garcia and his wife Megan, who arrived at the Broncos' training facility Monday to pick up some Broncos T-shirts for the kids and photos for the players to autograph.

They got there in José's tricked-out 2001 Dodge Durango, which is painted from top to bottom in orange and blue with matching upholstery, and painted also with Broncos logos past and present.

The Garcias hope to get some of the players to sign the hood of their "Broncomobile."

"We're hoping," Megan Garcia said.

"We're proud of it," José Garcia said, adding that he spent $10,000 to $11,000 over the years to outfit the ride.

The Broncos Team Store has seen a steady stream of people Monday, purchasing Super Bowl hats and T-shirts. The hats, in fact, have already sold out, said sales associate Andrew Bacan.

Tuesday will be the big chance for fans, as a parade in downtown Denver is scheduled for noon, followed by a rally at Civic Center Park at 1 p.m.
