Photographer's Note

De-icing of an airplane of the Brussels Airlines, the former SABENA and SN Brussels Airlines, at the Brussels Airport in Belgium.
The accumulation of ice on airplane wings, because of inadequate ground deicing or ice accumulation in-flight, is one of aviation’s most insidious problems.
When there are freezing conditions and precipitation, it is critical that an aircraft be de-iced.
In conventional deicing, crews use heated glycol-based fluids to remove existing ice, then coat the airplane with ice suppressants to prevent new ice from forming.

The work is done by the groundhandler Flightcare.

Although weather in Belgium is never extreme, a de-icing team is prepared and ready for wintry temperatures, snow and ice.

Brussels Airport is equipped with a de-icing platform, which aircraft taxi through prior to take-off.
