4 new aircraft type were found on an expedition by 3 professional plane spotters in Western Madagascar. The discovery is special because it will probably change how scientists think about the evolution of aviation.
The expedition took 2 years and ended last June but the findings have just been published in a paper. The discovery is special because some of the types discovered were not predicted and not part of any standard model.
Findings include a perfectly functioning twin engine jumbojet with no left wing, an underwater hot air balloon, a gliding helicopter and what the spotters can only describe as “a mix between a 747-800 and a penguin”
