I was on a Canadair RJ yesterday. I think this is the first time that I
have been on a plane that was deiced. I have a question. How much does
deicing cost for a plane like this? A 747? How many gallons? Is it
recycled? It looked like they used a pink spray and then a green spray.
I assume the red is a deice and the green is an anti ice, like ethelyne
glycol. It stuck really nice to the wing, very pretty. What was the red?

Thanks!
