Airplane parked at hangar after deicing

Detailed Description

A technician has just finished applying Type IV aircraft anti-icing fluid (which is green) to an airplane parked at a hangar. Anti-icing fluid is applied after the plane has already been deiced and it is used to prevent new ice from forming. Type IV fluid typically shears off the fuselage during takeoff and can be deposited along runways.
