Nice shot, Ken! Thought at first glance they were using a flame thrower instead of glycol :) Well done! 5*

Hey thank you Dave………

A flame thrower would be a lot more fun and tricky !!

They had us in the first half, not gonna lie

Hello Ken,
A marvelous effect of the deicing process, something we do not see in israel.
Pilots inside warm & comfy, drinking coffee :)

Another awesome photo! I really like the look of that being de-iced! Outside it is like a blizzard and everyone is freezing and inside those pilots will be sitting in their seats drinking hot chocolate or something! One question though: I'm zooming in and the tail number doesn't look like N717FD, it looks like N674FE or something like that. Is that just me?
Gary Schenauer
@FSXBoeing ... Nope, it isn't just you. FDX puts the reg number numerals on the nose gear doors and you are correct ... this is "674." And the name under the window is "Thea" which IS the name on Fed Ex's 674.
Good eye ...
Nick Fenton
Alright, thanks for telling me! Anyway, this is a 5-star photo!
Gary Schenauer
It definitely is! I'd give it more than 5 if possible. And I can certainly understand Ken having a difficult time catching the reg. Last Sunday, I was out taking clicks during a snowfall and I had a similar difficulty determining the correct reg of a couple of a/c I snapped. For one of the jets I'd shot, I had to research the reg on the computer when I got home.
Nick Fenton
Oh yeah! Hats off to him for getting this wonderful pic!

Gary & FSX Boeing.......

You 2 are right....I had the wrong number on my pic.
I just made the N Number Change on the Fed Ex Airbus.

Thank you for noticing.

You're all good! No worries! Great photo! One of the best I've seen so far!
