Another scientist who brought new knowledge to America was Viktor Schauberger. Although there is no evidence that Schauberger had Nazi sympathies, he was viewed by the Americans as a collaborator and put into protective custody for six months at the end of the war. Walter Miethe and Rudolph Schriever also entered America under Operation Paperclip. It is believed that their colleague Habermohl fell into Russian hands. While in the United States Miethe continued his flying disk work working primarily for the USA Air Force. He was sub-contracted to AV & Company.
Controversial AVRO Saucer Probably Design Of Nazi Scientist
In 1959 Jack Judges, a freelance cameraman was flying over this company plant in Canada when he saw and photographed a disk shaped craft sitting on the ground. After the photograph was published in the papers speculation grew that the disk was a secret weapon, and one that may have accounted for many of the UFO sightings during previous years. In response to the speculation the USA Air Force released official photograph of the craft. It was called the AVRO and had first been launched in 1955.
AVRO Saucer Never Anything More Than Smokescreen
A Central Intelligence Agency memo confirmed that the craft was based on work undertaken by German scientists, notably Miethe, during World War II. The design was later abandoned in the late 1960s with the Air Force maintaining it was still at an experimental stage when abandoned. The 1990s were to reveal the craft was part of the secret `Project Silver Bug', a project to develop a craft that had vertical take-off and landing capabilities that would dispense with the need for runways and reduce the risks of such runways been targets of attack thus immobilizing any aircraft that may rely on it.
Nazi Scientists Felt Right At Home In New Berlin USA
Other German scientists similarly brought their expertise and designs into the USA after the war. America Aircraft Year Book notes how many of them worked at Fort Bliss and Wright Field:- the first and second homes of the Roswell flying saucer wreckage. Among those in the German group at Wright Field were Rudolph Hermann, Alexander Lippisch, Heinz Schmitt, Helmut Heinrich, Fritz Doblhoff and Ernst Zundel. Hermann was attached to the Peenemunde Research Station for Aerodynamics where Germany's V-2 rockets were hatched and launched against England. A specialist in supersonics, he was in charge of the supersonic wind tunnel at Kochel in the Bavarian Alps. He was also a member of the group entrusted with Adolph Hitler futuristic plans to establish a space station rocket- efuelling bases revolving as a satellite about the Earth at a distance of 4,000 miles - a scheme which he and certain high ranking officers in 1947 still believed possible.
German Flying Saucer Designs Still Being
One of these scientists, Alexander Lippisch, had designed another German craft that could be mistaken at the time for a flying disc. Certainly at least when viewed from the side. Lippisch had developed a number of projects leading up to the war having been inspired by witnessing a flight by Orville Wright in September 1909 when a boy of 14.
