Here you can see the activation of very effectiv thermal wing anti ice and the resulting ice-shedding in flight.

On this type of aircraft wing anti-ice is usually used as a de-icing device to remove existing ice on the wing, seldom to prevent icing.

I like to remember that, even though it looks very easy to remove ice on the wings leading edges, ice can still impose a threat to the aircraft, especially on the engines. It cannot really bring an engine to stop, but it still can cause some serious damage.

Enjoy
