    major weather hazards that cause a number of aircraft accidents. It is a hazard that can snowball out of control and cause problems such as reduce aircraft efficiency by increasing weight‚ reduce lift‚ decrease thrust and increase drag. These effects can cause the aircraft to increase stalling speed or cause the aircraft to force downward in flight. Over the years‚ aircraft engines and airframes have changed dramatically. Modern day aircraft are aerodynamically less accepting of airfoil
