Airmen battle ice, snow to ensure readiness
Airmen assigned to the 62nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron spray a C-17 Globemaster III with deicing liquid at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Jan. 16, 2019. Ice and snow on the flight control surfaces, such as the tail and wings, can introduce unknown aerodynamic characteristics that may render the aircraft unsafe for takeoff.
