Video - Icing on Horizontal Stabilzers

Referring to the recent Continental Connection (Colgan Air) Q400 crash which might have happened because of ice-building, I’ve found some great NASA research video on this subject. It describes how ice is building up on horizontal stabilzers and wings and how it affects handling of an airplane, particularly during approach.
