De-icing trucks at airports are specialised vehicles equipped with large tanks that contain de-icing fluids such as glycol. They are used to remove snow, ice and frost from the exterior of aircraft before takeoff.
During cold weather, ice can accumulate on the wings, tail and fuselage of an aircraft, which can interfere with the aerodynamics of the plane and potentially cause it to crash. To prevent this from happening, de-icing trucks spray a mixture of water and de-icing fluid on to the aircraft’s surface, breaking up and removing the ice.
