From Wikipedia:

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

The Quimbaya artifacts are several dozen golden objects found in Colombia, made by the Quimbaya civilization and dated around 1000 C.E., a few of which (the so-called Quimbaya airplanes) are supposed by ancient astronaut-theorists to represent modern airplanes and therefore to be out-of-place artifacts.

Some of the two to three-inch-long figurines in the Gold Museum in Bogotá are described by mainstream archaeologists as depicting highly stylized birds, lizards, amphibians, and insects common in that region and period.

In 1994, Germans Peter Belting and Conrad Lubbers 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.
