They look like they're off to give injections. I wonder what drugs they'd be giving?

Glad you captured the shot, since many people probably have never heard of aircraft de-icers, especially at the major airports, and are not aware of their purpose. They are an integral part of making flights safer in bad winter weather conditions.

Well, I suppose it depends on where you live. If never go to colder places by plane I can imagine you'd have never seen one. If you fly frequently in places like this though, you'll run into them eventually :)

These are quite sophisticated ones as well.

Dunno, I think it'd be really fun to muck around in as a fun fair ride.

They are quite neat (and expensive) machines, but they do have an odd look, yeah.

I think all things like that are eerie looking. Cranes especially. With the addition of fog or mist, its even worse... or better...

Do they spray the plane with a chemical or just hot water?

Looks very futuristic, though. :P

They can spray either chemicals or a chemical / water mix.
