AN “alien glider’ that was found in Egyptian tomb “is proof that extra-terrestrials have once visited Earth”, a UFO enthusiast has claimed.

The small wooden bird-shaped model was found in the Djoser Pyramid in 1898, and is estimated to be around 2200 years old.

The artefact has aerodynamic qualities and bares the phrase, “I want to fly”, on its front.

This has prompted scientists to believe the Egyptians wanted to make a flying machine based on something they had seen.

Speaking in the latest episode of Ancient Aliens, Dr Algund Eenboom said: “The Saqqara bird is a highly developed glider.

“I think the people from ancient times were visited by beings not from Earth. They gave us culture and scientific technologies to improve our life on earth from the primitive to a higher developed country.”

Aerospace engineer Dr Uwe Apel also backed the claims that the Egyptians would have seen “flying machines or an aircraft”.

He said: “It’s interesting – clearly, on one hand, it should look like a bird, [but] on the other hand, the wings are clearly not bird wings.”

This revelation comes days after a conspiracy theorist claimed there is an “alien hanger” hidden in the Nevada mountains.
