Ancient single-seat rocket-ship hidden away in the Istanbul Archaeology Museum in Turkey for a quarter of a century. Zecharia Sitchin describes this object as,    "a sculpted scale model of what, to modern eyes, looks like a cone-nosed rocket-ship… Powered by a cluster of four exhaust engines in the back surrounding a larger exhaust engine, the rocket-ship has room for a sole pilot-actually shown and included in the sculpture."

Le Morane-Saulnier MS.406 est le premier avion de chasse moderne des années 1930 à entrer en service dans les unités de l'Armée de l'air, et sans doute l'un des avions de combat français les plus connus de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Il est le premier chasseur français dépassant les 400 km/h1, et l'un des deux seuls types d'appareil français construits à plus de 1 000 exemplaires, avec le Potez 63.
