An Airplane from Ancient Egypt

An Airplane from Ancient Egypt

Could the ancient Egyptians foresee the modern airplane? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

In 1898, an object that was thought to be a small wooden model of a bird was discovered in Egypt. The “unremarkable” find was tossed into a box. Today that object is on display at the Cairo Museum and is officially labeled as a model airplane.

The plane’s design shows that it is an excellent glider, and with a small engine it could carry huge loads because of its unique wing design. This 2,200 year old model airplane had wings that angle slightly downward at the ends – exactly the same wing design that was first used in modern times on the supersonic Concorde!

Everyone agrees that humans have always been interested in flight. But now it appears that creationists were right – we have always been smart enough to do something about our interest in flight!
