Freezing passengers trapped for hours: Aircraft are sprayed with slime

Extreme weather is extra hard for the aircraft, and in these days watching Europe snowstorms in several places.

It means extra delays and klargøringer of the aircraft.

Many of us have tried to get out to the car in the morning in the cold winter months and have to scrape ice of the windows or sit in the car and turn on the heat for a while to be able to see out.

It is not only cars that need defrosting in cold weather, it should fly also.

According to the aerosavvy.com means sub-zero temperatures, that there will be ice on the wings, and it alters the surface shape and texture.

Since the air flow under and over the wing is responsible for lifting the plane up, will anything on the wing change or interfere with the aircraft.

Therefore, says the international flyregler also, that the wings must be free from ice, snow and frost prior to departure, and it is a big reason for the delays in the winter - even when the storm is not raging.
