I used to do something similar with a Piper Navajo, nearly 30 years ago. Under the proper circumstances, it was quite effective. There is a limited temperature range and set of conditions under which it works.

The russians do that for ice removal on runsways. It has to be seen to be believed.

One day, an untrained operator logged the first supersonic flight in a tank. :D
