Upon being deiced the plane has to configure for fluid applications, when you deice that plane, the snow can easily fall down, or run down the flaps when extended.

I love this shot. its rare to get snow at LHR which makes this more special. i've always liked Virgin Atlantic's livery but set against the snow its even better.

It's not that rare to have snow at Heathrow, it happens for at least one week every year.
