Airmen from the 92nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron work together to deice a KC-135 Stratotanker Jan. 29, 2014, at Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash. Aircraft deicing 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/Staff Sgt.
