That's if E.T.truly exist. I have not seen one but I am open to the notion. Just not sure their tech would require an actual runway.

You may be right. Although, consider that, if aliens came to Earth and stayed for a length of time, (hundreds or thousands of years), wouldn't it be reasonable that they would use the resources found on Earth? They may have advanced knowledge and technology, but they would still need a fuel source and to build and maintain/repair their vehicles.
You know the majority of the lines are ceremonial symbols and there huge scale is there most impressive feature, there however is the fact that there is a mountain whose top has been totally removed to create a large flat and level runway like strip

there however is the fact that there is a mountain whose top has been totally removed to create a large flat and level runway like strip and this is not a nazca line but is integrated into the lines, most archaeologists (Because they do not have an explanation)
Mcx42 and Elton I am fully aware of what a Mesa is and would suggest you do some research into that mountain at Nazca as it is not a Mesa, there have been geological studys and archaeological, why would the archaeologist claim it was done as a ceremonial platorm if it was natural.
The top of the MOUNTAIN was removed it is as simple as that.
I think they are stylized animal figurines.
A cargo cult is a kind of Melanesian millenarian movement encompassing a diverse range of practices and occurring in the wake of contact with the commercial networks of colonizing societies. The name derives from the apparent belief that various ritualistic acts will lead to a bestowing of material wealth ("cargo").
Cargo cults often develop during a combination of crises. Under conditions of social stress, such a movement may form under the leadership of a charismatic figure. This leader may have a "vision" (or "myth-dream") of the future, often linked to an ancestral efficacy thought to be recoverable by a return to traditional morality. This leader may characterize the present state (often imposed by colonial capitalist regimes) as a dismantling of the old social order, meaning that social hierarchy and ego boundaries have been broken down.
Pacific cults of World War II
The most widely known period of cargo cult activity occurred among the Melanesian islanders in the years during and after World War II. A small population of indigenous peoples observed, often right in front of their dwellings, the largest war ever fought by technologically advanced nations. First, the Japanese arrived with a great deal of supplies and later the Allied forces did likewise.
The vast amounts of military equipment and supplies that both sides airdropped (or airlifted to airstrips) to troops on these islands meant drastic changes to the lifestyle of the islanders, many of whom had never seen outsiders before. Manufactured clothing, medicine, canned food, tents, weapons and other goods arrived in vast quantities for the soldiers, who often shared some of it with the islanders who were their guides and hosts. This was true of the Japanese Army as well, at least initially before relations deteriorated in most regions.
The John Frum cult, one of the most widely reported and longest-lived, formed on the island of Tanna, Vanuatu. This cult started before the war, and only became a cargo cult afterwards. Cult members worship certain "Americans" (such as John Frum and Tom Navy), who they claimed had brought cargo to their island during World War II, as the spiritual entity who would provide the cargo to them in the future.
