Look at the altitudes that airliners cruise at and check out what the temperatures are at those altitudes on even the warmest days, and get back to us.
i agree with you. its MUCH MUCH MUCH colder up there at cruise altitude.

Aircrash Investigation and Seconds from Disaster are some on my favorate shows....its just sad that some little careless-ness and distraction lead to disaster....

great show indeed.

how about that flight where the pilots window gave out and pilot got sucked out and the flight attendant was holding him by his foot.

that was some miracle.

True that, however, the pressure and moisture levels are so low up there, there is virtually no chance for any icing that high...

That was British Airways Flight 5390, BAC-111. The cockpit windscreen was just bolted from the outside. So once the bolts failed, the cabin pressure just burst the windshield out and sucked the captain out.
Investigation found the maintenance used a bolt one size smaller coz the maintenance crew decided to use new bolts but did not verify the correct bolt to be used.....

Too bad we can't apply that logic to some of the political turf wars that have been going on for the last 10+ years.

prop planes does have a less effective deicing system when compared to jets, but it's not unflyable by any means.
