They can be found in the Museo del Oro, in Bogota, Columbia. They are solidly dated and accepted as being some centuries old. Those are the real thing.
Golden object coming from a pre-Columbian tomb which, though an estimated age of 1800 years, evidently represents a scale-model of an airplane with delta wings, place for the engine, cabin, windshield, tail with flaps and elevators. It’s only one of many similar findings in South America.
One can identify vertical and horizontal stabilizers and swept-wings, ideal for supersonic flights. We can even see what could be looked as corrugated metal or underlining structures. And there are not one, but many of these artifacts, like the other one at right.
On its wings, in this case smooth, we can also see what could be a symbol, much like the ones adorning our planes today.
Some years ago, the AAS-RA (Archaeology, Astronautics and SETI Research Association) even tried to actually reproduce those ancient jets.
One was fitted with propellers, while the other was actually fitted with a small jet engine, in the exact location they assumed it was in the original jets.
If you are still skeptic, then swallow this: the models by Algund Eenboom and Peter Belting flew. They didn’t brake the sound barrier, but they flew quite well.
