They are fake
I am very sorry, but there is no helicopter or whatever in Seti I's temple at Abydos! As I said then, I can say again: it is a perfectly clear case of an ancient correction of a text which may now to a non-Egyptologist look like a helicopter. It is very common in tombs and temples that the original hieroglyphs were changed and then the first text covered by some kind of paste which has now disappeared so we can see part of the first text below the newer one.

The old glyph was filled in with a paste to cover it up, which was widely done in ancient egypt

I have seen suggested theories (sorry no link, or resource) that this was the result of someone re-carving the wall to replace heiroglyphics that were pre-existing, but they had not finished the job. I've also read/heard of reports that these carvings do indeed predate helicopters, and hovercrafts. Again, sorry no link or resource, but thought these concepts were worth relating.
if these are fakes then there very impressive
