Did The Ancient Eygpitions Ever Fly?

Mon Dec 29, 2003 11:58 pm

I was searching the web for strange airplane pictures, when i came across this site :

www.world-mysteries.com/sar_7.htm

There are pictures in the site of models made by ancient eygiptions. The models seemed like strange old planes. When i saw this i really began doubting if the wright brothers were the FIRST to fly a power machine.

PS : If you look so closley to the image you could see that the module is close to the shape of the Harrier fighting plane.

So Whats your opinion ?

No the Ancient Eygptions [sic] never flew. If you think the pyramids were built with the help of aliens, then I'm sure you'll love that site.

Oh yes they did, from the top of the pyramids. They built the whole aircraft out of papyrus, even the propeller powered by twisted crocodile guts, and called it Air Ra II!

They did a catapult launch -- had the Air Ra II at the bottom of one face attached to a very, very heavy boulder at the top and then let the boulder roll down the other side pulling up the Air Ra II. They originally tried having slaves run down the other face pulling the Air Ra II up but it didn't work out as it turned into a human avalanche.
