What would happen if you take a cube of ice, at a specific size, and fit it in an airthight glass box with the exact same dimensions, and then let it melt?

Since water expands when it's frozen, I'm interested in knowing what would happen if I did this. Would the water fill the entire box, or would there now be a layer of air above it? If it's the first, I take it the glass box would implode if it was thin enough?
