Why the Cold is Bad for Planes...
The problem is that while planes can be de-iced (usually by spraying them with a mix of water and glycol alcohol), getting ice off a runway when the temperatures are low and there's no sunshine is much harder. "There's hardly anything you can do," Jack Gartner, who worked in operations at New York airports for over 30 years, told Business Insider. Especially since you don't want to risk damaging the pavement on the runway. Potholes and other imperfections in the pavement make takeoff and landing less safe.
