Slick Silhouette: STL Photo of the Week

Posted on March 01, 2019 in Photos

Earlier this week, a light glaze of ice coated the airfield of St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL). One plane parked over night before the weather hit and departed after much of the slick stuff stuck to the pavement. What was left behind was a mysterious “ghost” image of the aircraft just off of Concourse B. The belly and wings gave dry cover from the other elements to produce a pretty “slick” silhouette soon after the aircraft wheeled away for its next day of flights.  This was one area where our crews didn’t have to treat initially. Our crews and partners were focused everywhere else to treat runways, taxiways and ramp areas to ensure safe operations of aircraft.  Those crews will be back on the job this weekend as the forecast calls for another round of the winter wet stuff, this time 2-4” of snow.
