Safety oversight over disputed airspace

Onderzoeksoutput: Bijdrage aan tijdschriftTijdschriftartikelAcademicpeer review


Daedalus was an engineer who was imprisoned by King Minos in the Labyrinth in Crete. With his son, Icarus, he made wings of wax and feathers to escape by air as Minos controlled the sea around Crete. He gave instructions to Icarus: “With these wings you will fly like a bird, but be careful. Make sure you do not fly too close to the Sun, or the wax that holds the feathers together will melt and not too low or the spray from the sea will weigh down your wings.” Daedalus flew successfully from Crete to Naples, but Icarus ignored his father’s instructions and flew too high. The wings of wax melted and Icarus fell to his death in the ocean. Daedalus’ flight long has stood as a symbol of safety, success and progress in flight.
