King Minos may control the ships but he doesn't control the air!
Icarus go get me all the feathers you can find
You must not fly to close to the sea for the wings will clog or to close to the sun for the wax will melt
Daedalus and Icarus are imprisoned on a island in a tower by king Minos. They escape the tower to find that they have no way of escaping the island.
Daedalus comes up with an idea to get them off the island.Icarus gathers the feathers while Daedalus uses wax a pieces of rope to form the wings.
Daedalus tests his wings and seeing that they work quickly makes a smaller pair for his son. Before setting out on their great escape, Daedalus tells Icarus the rules of his new wings.
Icarus and Daedalus take flight flying above the sea doing what no person has done before. Icarus discovers the freedom of flight. He flies higher and higher until the wax holding his wings together melts sending him plummeting into the sea.
Icarus crashes into the sea and drowns despite his father's attempts to save him. Daedalus picks his son up out of the water and carries his body to a nearby uninhabited island.He buries Icarus there and renames the land Icaria in his memory.
Daedalus arrives safely to his home where he builds a temple to Apollo and hangs up his wings as an offering to the god.
