Rotating-cylinder measurements of the icing conditions encountered in flight during the winter of 1947-48 are presented. Liquid-water content, drop size, and temperature data are shown to be consistent with previously measured conditions and with proposed maximum icing conditions in supercooled layer-type clouds.
