Reasons to avoid in-flight icing

The accretion of ice in these photos was obviously not an in-flight event, but it shows how serious it could be. These shots were taken after a freezing rain at KSHD (Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport). As you can see, the weight of the ice was enough to lift the nose of the plane off the ground.
