I had nothing to do with this incident (I’ve been asked a few times in the past few days). It seems likely that the spray just got too close to the intake vent. We’re supposed to avoid that. Sometimes the pilot will turn that off during de-icing, but usually not.
Would it be wrong to call them wusses? I am bathed in the stuff, coated in the spray from head to toe…you hear me whining?
Wimps. That’s all I have to say.
