An airspace of defined dimensions within which activities dangerous to the flight of aircraft may exist at specified times (ICAO). This activity is normally of a military nature, such as those taking place on a weapons-firing range or in a parachute-jumping or target-towing area. It is denoted by the letter D on aeronautical charts. The term is, however, not used in reference to areas within the United States or any of its possessions or territories.
