The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Not at all. If you look closely, everything is welded together; it's my guess that it's off to the scrap yard.
Now the one below is photo shopped at this time but if they can agree on a price, you'll see this for real!
The Dockwise Vanguard does exist.

Re: Not something you see every day

Saw this while watching the other vids .... New Oz Helicopter Landing ship, hull shipped from Spain to South Australia for completion in SA.



I wonder if those barges had been built somewhere like South Korea and shipped home from there.
