WASHINGTON (CN) - Icing conditions may cause certain Hawker Beechcraft airplanes to lose control, so the Federal Aviation Administration has grounded them when ice is expected.
The tubing that brings deicing solution to the tail on these models may collapse when the new climate control system turns on in the cabin.
