In Murun, Mongolia, residents tell about Khainzan Gelenkhuu, dubbed Mongolia' first pilot. He purportly jumped from 200 meters with an animal skin for wings. Though the wings depicted by the statue in Gelenkhuu's honor at the Murun (Mörön) Airport do not look flightworthy, the local folk assert their flight pioneer succeeded in his daring leap, allegedly injuring only two sheep below.
