92nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Airmen work together to de-ice and clear a path for a KC- 135 Stratotanker on the flight at Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash., Jan. 29, 2014. Aircraft de-icing is a process in which liquid solutions are sprayed onto an aircraft during the winter to both defrost and prevent future precipitation from freezing. Snow and ice on the wings and rear tail component change their shape and disrupt the airflow making it difficult to fly and diminishes fuel economy.(U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
