Hitler's secret flying saucer
Daily Mail ^ | 18th November 2010 | Allan Hall

Posted on 11/21/2010 12:49:41 PM PST by the scotsman

As Hitler's armies began to crumble on fronts as far apart as Stalingrad and North Africa, he turned in increasing desperation to his scientists to create a war-winning super-weapon.

Some, like the V2 rockets and the first jet fighters, saw action but came too late to halt defeat.

Others were so outrageously ambitious that they never got past the drawing board. The idea of building flying saucers to bomb London and even New York could have been just such a scheme.

But now it is claimed that Hitler’s scientists had indeed designed this type of aircraft – and were so far advanced with the project that a prototype may even have flown.

The programme, under the command of SS officer Hans Kammler, was said to have made significant breakthroughs with their experiments, says a report in the German science magazine PM.'

IF this thing ever flew it was not a flying saucer but a flying prop disc (think ‘air car’ more recently) for which prototypes constructed by American manufacture have found no maintainable directional control for flight. Fun balderdash, but still just balderdash.

I like the upside-down Panther tank turret on the bottom of the UFO in the 3rd pic. That thing must have had some real lift!.

The Nazis might have been evil, but they were never boring.

It’s a jolly good thing Hitler didn’t decide to devote two more years to military R&D before launching the war.

Funnily enough, when the British overran Pennemunde in 1945, there was and is photo/video evidence of circular UFO like craft that the British captured. Prototype stage.

The flying saucer is a device invented and flown by Big Foot. When Big Foot has landed the saucer and is out spreading terror in the American Northwest the parked flying saucer is guarded by the Chupacabra.

If Hitler had this, why didn’t he just use it to fly the coop?

I'd say the meth made him jump the gun.

I once had a Neo-Nazi troll on my blog tell me that Hitler escaped to Antarctica in a flying saucer. He was quite serious about this.

Where was he going to go? He had pretty much painted himself into a corner, and the German people with him. So, he opted out, leaving them to “go fish”. If not for the Berlin Airlift (provided by their compassionate enemies), many would have simply starved to death.

The allies won the war, appropriated the secrets, and 2 years later they were flying these craft. It’s not so far-fetched a theory as having extraterrestrials come across the Galaxy only to crash at Roswell.

Anyone who wants to come up to speed on this hypothesis would find the book “Intercept UFO” by Renato Vesco to be the original & best material to read.

The best post at the link:

“This is guerrilla advertising for ‘Iron Sky’, a Finnish movie sci-fi comedy scheduled for 2011, where Space Nazi flying saucers from the dark side of the moon invade Earth in 2018.”

Cool looking CGI, but what are they supposed to land those things on, stilts? They’ve got chopper blades for propellers, lol.

You’re right, I’ve seen one of these - but when it’s parked, it’s guarded by the Bigfoot’s CIA handlers, who control the operator with enormous bunches of bananas. The chupacabra is more like a kind of watch dog, rewarded with enormous cans of Alpo.

Your post was silly and does not belong on this serious type of WWII historical thread.*

FYI, wiseguy, chupacabras detest Alpo.

That’s based on a real aircraft. The Vought XF5U. An earlier, proof of concept version did fly.

Here’s more info and some photos of the aircraft on the ground.
