Excerpt from Airplanes and Safety
Mr. Will H. Low has painted a beautiful panel in the New York State Education Building, depicting the fall of Icarus; and by special permission Of the artist and the New York State Education Department we have used a photo - engraving Of it as the frontispiece Of this book. The modern airplane, high up in the sky of the painting, typifies the success that has finally followed in the wake of so many years Of dream ing and experimenting. The body Of Icarus lies upon the rocky shore where it has been cast up by the'sea, the nearness Of which is suggested, or symbolized, by the water in the immediate foreground.
