Plane lands on boat


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.

Yep...

loss of nav instruments and radios.

Pilot got in a lot of trouble even though he had a choice of punch out or try to save the plane. He saved the plane with minimal damage.
