De-Icing

De-Icing

There was a slight delay when I flew from Frankfurt to Vancouver to de-ice the place. That's something that I've never actually seen before. It's a fairly interesting and dramatic looking process.

If I remember correctly, first they spray on a pink fluid and then remove it with a green one. I'm thinking the colors are there to see that they've covered all the areas that need covering.

Whatever it takes to make sure it's done right. I've got no problem waiting for that.

My other photos of things related to flying (including some birds and kites) can be found in the gallery.
