RE: Don't Airplanes Have Washer Fluid? Photo

The 747 windshield wash system is deactivated on at least 3 major operators. One British, one American and one Australian.
Many moons ago, I asked instructors why the 747 and Tristar had no DV windows. "Because you can see the wingtips without them" was always the reply, which is a true statement.

RE: Deicing At Airports Prior To Departure

There are a number of "rules" about when to de-ice. The air temperature (as such) is not a deciding factor. De-icing, by it's very name, is only carried out to remove accumulations of snow, ice or frost.
In some circumstances, anti-icing may be carried out ahead of forecast icing conditions.

The ultimate decision on whether to de-ice or not rests with the captain.
