1490 - Using a mixture of natural gas and hydrogen, the Incan air fleet successfully crosses the Atlantic Ocean and lands three vessels in the Breton area of France. With their flying ships and winged motif costumes, they are initially mistaken for angels by the French peasants who find them. One of the 3 ships is destroyed by European military responses, but the other two return to the Incan Empire.
Unfortunately for the Europeans, they leave behind a plague that no one in Europe has developed any resistance to. Over the next 5 years, an estimated 75% of Europe dies of pneumonia. Entire cities burn and are left empty. The Catholic Church is essentially wiped out with the death of 99% of its leadership, including 5 elected popes. Rome is reduced to a city of under 5,000 people.
