ANN's Daily Aero-Term (11.30.09): Aircraft Icing

Aircraft Icing In-flight icing is the accretion of supercooled liquid water (SLW) on the airframe. This SLW can be in the form of cloud droplets or freezing rain/drizzle. Generally, cloud ice and snow do not adhere to the airframe, and graupel and small hail may actually help to remove accreted ice...
