Quimbaya Artifacts

The Quimbaya artifacts are several dozen golden objects, found in Colombia, made by the Quimbaya civilization, dated around 1000 CE, a few of which are supposed to represent modern airplanes, and therefore to be out-of-place artifacts. In 1994, German researchers created simplified radio-controlled scale models of these objects and showed that their models, which lack some convoluted features present in the real figurines, could fly.
