3rd Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Icarus Grounded

During her historic around the world flight, Solar Impulse 2 made a scheduled stop in Honolulu, Hawaii. Much like the famed Icarus, SI 2 also had an ill-fated contest with the sun, which damaged her batteries. This photo captures the elegant, modern lines of her wing against the industrial backdrop of the hangar where she awaits repair.
