Question

Cold soak effect - What is it?

Answer

The wings of an aircraft are said to be "cold soaked" when they contain very cold fuel which has cooled as a result of extended flight at high altitudes.  Occassionally, clear airframe ice may occur if the ambient temperatures are between -2 C degrees and + 15 C degrees and there is visable moisture or high humidity present and the airframe remains below 0 C degrees.
