Ancient airplanes were not typical to India and Egypt; you will be surprised to know that golden trinket-like structures were found in America too that resembled aircrafts. Stratigraphical studies conducted on these gold models have attributed them to a period in between 500 and 800 CE, which makes them over 1000 years old!

This particular ‘model’ is on display in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC. Its explanation states: “gold artefact, a stylised insect, from the Quimbaya culture, Antioquia province, Columbia, ca. 1000-1500 AD.”
The spirals upon its wings and nose look like symbolical inscriptions rather than zoomorphic (animal like) eyes. You will further see semicircular grooves, a rectangular knob-like projection under the fuselage, slightly down-curved wings and the geometric symmetry of the entire structure. All these features have led many experts to conclude the figurines as crude forms of olden airplanes.
