C. Icing by location.
As expected, most of the icing accidents and incidents occurred in the United
States (Table 17), and 24 of those occurred in Alaska. Although the frequency of
occurrence was higher in northern tier states, e.g., Kansas, Washington, and
Alaska, several icing accidents and incidents were reported in southern tier states,
e.g., Louisiana, Alabama, and Texas. The Federal Republic of Germany (FRG)
and Korea were second and third, respectively, in the number of accidents and
incidents. This is not surprising considering the large presence of U.S. Forces in
Table 17. Location of icing accidents and incidents (FY85FY99).
