The DC9-10 had a hard wing as well, and just recently the airlines which
operate it installed wing leading edge heaters to help alleviate the
problem that, with no leading edge devices, the airplane's susceptibility
to leading edge ice is greater than, say a DC9-30.

Does the CRJ have the same type o system, or is it as sensitive to wing
surface roughness due to ice?
