This is one of those ' everything you always wanted to know
about, but were too afraid to ask ' type questions ;

All TWA aircraft I've seen recently have a matt black paint stripe
about one third span about 3 ft wide running chordwise on the top of
each wing. Why ? Ice detection ?
It just seems a little bit retro' sitting on a 767 ?

Anybody know the story behind this ?
