Ancient glider

In 1898 a small wooden, winged object was found in the tomb of Pa-di-Imen in north Saqqara, Egypt. The model has the exact proportions of a very advanced form of “pusher-glider” however it was identified as a “bird model”. Made of very light sycamore the craft weighs 0.5 oz. with straight and aerodynamically shaped wings, spanning about 7 inches. It looks like modern-day aircraft though is 2,000-year-old.
