Just when the townspeople became used to having 12,000 U.S. military personnel in their town, businesses, and their backyards (where anti-aircraft weapons were sometimes positioned), the buildup was reversed. Gunson states it is not a photo montage at all. The words translate roughly into: Kraftstoff = fuel; Feuergefahrlich = highly inflammable or combustible; Wehrmacht = unified armed forces of Nazi Germany. See today's front and back pages, download the newspaper, That plan circulated around a practically secret location 350 miles north of the defense plants where two of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior and Lake Huron practically come together at Sault Ste. Ironically, because of that flyover, reported or otherwise, without any fanfare or raising controversy, a drawing of a six engine German bomber by a New York based artist showed up in a rather innocuous little publication dated January, 1944. (see), For years reports have surfaced that the next year, sometime around September 17-19, 1944, a large six engine aircraft painted very dark green and black paint crashed in the sea off Owls Head Lighthouse, Maine. The test is said to have killed over 700 POWs interred in the Ohrdruf concentration camp located practically under ground zero. That would make the Ju-390 coming up short by at least 1,200 miles, running out of fuel someplace over the north Atlantic on its return unless it was refueled somewhere, somehow along the way. P-40 WARHAWKPEARL HARBOR SURVIVOR For example, during World War I, except for fate intervening they came close --- and their method for their planned attack was within reason. The following is fairly typical of what is found written about the sighting and photograph: Since nobody was excessively over interested in drawings done by some low level cartoonist, he just stuck them away in his morgue. That is to say, somewhere between the time it left wherever it left and it was to get to wherever it was going, it never arrived. The publication unit for the comic book was based in the city of New York with the art work for that particular story attributed to a man named Harry Ramsey, of which below is one of the pages: The difficulty most historians have with such a claim is that the Ju-390's first flight is officially stamped into the records as happening two months later, on October 20 1943. Marie. Depending where the plane lifted off, a round trip bombing run from somewhere in German occupied Europe, say Mont-de-Marsan near Bordeaux to New York as it has been reported and back during World War II, would have been in the 7,200 mile range. Fission weapons are commonly referred to as atomic bombs, and fusion weapons are referred to as thermonuclear bombs or, more commonly, hydrogen bombs. Why did General Eisenhower immediately order a propaganda campaign about Nazi atrocities? Even before the outbreak of war in 1939, a group of American scientists–many of them refugees from fascist regimes in Europe–became concerned with nuclear weapons research being conducted in Nazi Germany. We noticed there was a powerful wind, then nose bleeds, headaches and pressure in the ears.". A method was devised and put into place to refuel it. Marie canal had, as depicted above, a triangular shaped configuration of three interconnecting over 5,000 foot long concrete runways. He also reported, like Werner, that local residents complained of headaches, and spitting up blood. Before the Ju-390 ever left Europe German agents scrounged around for a couple 2 1/2 Ton 6x6 airfield fuel trucks or equivalent. When my uncle discovered in some roundabout way that he actually knew Harry Ramsey, the artist who did the drawings used in the Goose Shoot, my uncle, knowing how much I loved the story decided to put into place a situation where the two of us could actually meet. Marie canal had, as depicted above, a triangular shaped configuration of three interconnecting over 5,000 foot long concrete runways. That airfield, originally built to defend the Soo locks on the Sault Ste. Since the above information was put online quite a number of emails have been received wanting to know just what the "it" was that the Soviets absconded from the Nazis at the close of the war in Europe. Did he just happen to look up from his drawing table on the afternoon of August 28, 1943 and see the fly over of the six-engine Junker and simply incorporate them into his story published January 1944 as though they as a bomber were an everyday German plane? By the end of the war the Germans were on the ropes and willing to try almost anything. Sources indicated in June 2008 that the United States ha… Many of … It was hoped for by the Germans that they could use the Azores as a refueling stop either coming or going or both. I was in Germany after WW2 saw the destruction and smiled well you Germans started it, and we did a better job to Finish it Did he just happen to look up from his drawing table on the afternoon of August 28, 1943 and see the fly over of the six-engine Junker and simply incorporate them into his story published January 1944 as though they as a bomber were an everyday German plane? JUNKERSMOTORENWERKE (Agts: Haan) They knew the end was closing in on them and any last major "big bang" of a coup that could possibly turn the tide in their favor, give them a breather, or extend the war long enough to finish the development, operational reliability, and production on some of the weapons they were working on such as the V-2 rocket, Me 262 jet fighter and the massive six engine 7000 mile range Ju 390. RMZ WURKE Nb 135?34 (Allgemiene) Never to be seen again of course. By the end of 1944 there was only one company of men left at nearby Fort Brady. One day at lunch or over coffee or drinks, and still struggling with his dilemma to complete the story, he mentioned his bomber problem to a fellow artist who just happened to be a cartoonist drawing comics day-to-day for the same publishing company. AREA 51, GROOM LAKE, ROSWELL Lerche confirmed the aircraft RC+DA was indeed a Ju-390 aircraft. Hence the submersible. Strong electrical disturbances and the impossibility to continue radio communication as by lighting turned up. That explosion is said to have been the second of two nuclear devices the Germans set off just at the end of the war. The above graphic depicts a JU-52, the type troop transport that was on the recipient or loosing end of P-40s during the 100 plane North Africa "Goose Shoot." In the book Wilcox writes about the two Japanese men my uncle encountered and the U-boat they arrived in, of which I turn around and write about as found in the sourced link below the quote so cited: "Wilcox's book that, for the first time brought to the public's attention Japanese agents having been in the desert southwest during World War II specifically tasked with testing soil samples for radiation, was published in 1985. The photo was taken by merchant seaman Ron Whylie whilst his convoy KMF-5 was under attack in late 1942. (source) Nazi Germany could have developed nuclear weapons if it had won the war. So long range was the abilities of the Ju-390 one was been reported to have left Europe coming in over Canada crossing into U.S. airspace to photograph defense plants in Michigan only to exit out over the Atlantic sometime after noon on August 28, 1943 by coming in behind any east-facing aircraft detection systems and passing directly over New York above the Empire State Building. Approximately 150 U.S.non-strategicgravity B-61 warheads. The difficulty most historians have with such a claim is that the Ju-390's first flight is officially stamped into the records as happening two months later, on October 20 1943. The photo of RC+DA is given credit to having been taken by a merchant seaman named Ron Wylie of convoy KMF-5 while in support of Operation TORCH. With a few minor changes such as the tail section, from two vertical stabilizers to one, Ramsey used the same low level cartoonist's drawings for his own bomber inspiration. German commandos secured the area long enough for the landing, refueling and takeoff, all of which apparently went off without a hitch. Compared to a strict bombing run on New York and back, flying in over Canada and exiting directly out over the Empire State Building would put somewhere in the vicinity of 1,200 additional miles on a round trip flight --- meaning of course, ending up with a major fuel deficit of at least 2,400 miles returning to Europe. That airfield, originally built to defend the Soo locks on the Sault Ste. "The German nuclear energy project, was an attempted clandestine scientific effort led by Germany to develop and produce atomic weapons during World War II. As a preface, that is setting the scene, Ohrdruf was the first and only concentration camp that the Supreme Allied Commander, General Eisenhower ever visited. For more on the JU-390 photograph see: The UK was the third nation to develop nuclear weapons in 1952, after the United States and the Soviet Union. JUNKERSMOTORENWERKE (Agts: Haan) Contributors to the historical controversy have deployed the documents selected here to support their arguments about the first use of nuclear weapons and the end of World War II. However, the Azores had long been removed from the equation. The aircraft would still be carrying some fuel when it set down, just not enough for a complete round trip, and knowing it would take thousands of gallons to top it off and, although there was a possibility the airfield had a store of aviation fuel somewhere, not wanting to take a chance the Germans wanted to ensure not only its availability but that the total control was under their own hand by not tipping their hand. What was most intriguing for me was that when (Ramsey) was creating the drawings for the story neither did he. The next day his fellow artist went through his morgue and came up with a series of three or four pencil sketches he drew dated August 1943 of a huge six engine plane with a German insignia on the fuselage he saw flying by his high perch window one day in the sky over New York. WHEN WORLD WAR II CAME TO THE SAULT Actually, workers in nuclear weapons plants constitute only a fraction of Americans whose lives have been ravaged by preparations for nuclear war. The reknown Ju-390 test pilot Hans Werner Lerche in his autobiography refers to RC+DA in his book and mentions it as the other Ju-390. There are as well many comments, both pro and con, about the possibility of the photo being "photoshopped." "A copy of his photo of RC+DA was long held by the Museum in Vienna and published by German test pilot Hans Werner Lerche in his own autobiography. However, somewhere along the way, in or near the far reaches of Arctic Siberia, either while still on the train or after it had been transfered to vehicles, it disappeared. How the offloading of fuel from the ship or boat to shore was accomplished or how the trucks were filled is not known with any amount of certainty. In his book entitled The SS Brotherhood of the Bell, author James P. Farrell wrote about "the alleged German test of a small critial mass, high yield atom bomb at or near the Ohrdruf troop parade ground on March 4, 1945." Depending where the plane lifted off, a round trip bombing run from somewhere in German occupied Europe, say Mont-de-Marsan near Bordeaux to New York as it has been reported and back during World War II, would have been in the 7,200 mile range. The advanced German weapons of World War 2. Almost right out of high school I got a job with a company that designed and built the breathing equipment for the U-2, the then super-secret high altitude spy plane. Documents unearthed in an American archive suggest that Nazi Germany may have tested an operational nuclear bomb before the end of the Second World War. A USN Intelligence report in June 1945 asserts the Japanese already had full performance details for the Ju-390 by October 1943. He usually sat with his back to the wall, was continually looking over his shoulder, and invariably jumped at the slightest sound, re the following: As time wore on and the war and wartime experiences faded into the background he mellowed. RACO ARMY AIRFIELD, RACO MICHIGAN However, personally I have a tendency to lean toward the "not photoshopped" side, especially since strong evidence exists that the photo has long been known to exist in its present form with no known reason for it to have been modified, that is there was nothing to gain as the original owner, as far as I have been able to discern, had no dog in the hunt. That would make the Ju-390 coming up short by at least 1,200 miles, running out of fuel someplace over the north Atlantic on its return unless it was refueled somewhere, somehow along the way. The location of the airfield was less than six miles due south through the forest from Pendills Bay which is wedged along the lakeshore between the larger Whitefish Bay of the even larger Lake Superior. Because of that clearance I met a person called "Harry the Man," who, at that time was considered to be the top-rated high altitude breathing equipment specialist in the world. The photograph of the JU-390 a few paragraphs above-back, said to have been taken from a convoy ship supplying the beachhead during Operation Torch, the Allied invasion of North Africa in late 1942. Did he just happen to look up from his drawing table on the afternoon of August 28, 1943 and see the fly over of the six-engine Junker and simply incorporate them into his story published January 1944 as though they as a bomber were an everyday German plane? A resident of Burlington, Vermont, Ruben Paul Whittemore, has reported he had relatives who witnessed the recovery of three bodies found in the Penobscot river estuary on September 28, 1944 and taken by the U.S. Coast Guard to Rockland Maine Station. (source) Home of the Daily and Sunday Express. The question is, how is it Ramsey, who did an excellent job drawing the P-40s come up with the idea of a six-engine German aircraft? order back issues and use the historic Daily Express In 1952, the United Kingdom became the third country (after the United States and the Soviet Union) to develop and test nuclear weapons, and is one of the five nuclear-weapon states under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.. His log submitted to the Allied investigators reads; "In early October 1944 I flew away 12-15 km from a nuclear test station near Ludwigslust (South of Lübeck). The Germans had a six engine bomber, the Ju-390, a model that was reportedly never seen before it was photographed by a person onboard a convoy ship supplying the beachhead during the Allied invasion of North Africa in November 1942, a photograph that didn't show up for public viewing until well after that date. However, over the years following the war quite a number of empty 44 gallon drums similar to the one pictured below were found up and down along the beach and under the water not far Pendills Creek. Most likely any fully operable and deliverable atomic device would have been aimed toward nothing but the destruction of New York City. For more on the JU-390 photograph see: The distraction, of course, was the Germans having detonated a nuclear bomb, a major game changer for the Third Reich depending on what their intent was relative to its use. October 20th was in fact the date when the Allies intercepted a diplomatic signal to Tokyo giving a table of performance details for the Ju-390, which was so explicit that it was impossible for a program of test flights to have established all this in just the last ten days of october 1944. First, the mysterious German U-boat U-196 and secondly, as reported on this page, the potential possibility of not only a Nazi atomic bomb prior to the end of World War II, but also the actual testing of one. Nazi Germany’s Rejection of “Jewish Physics” Theoretically, by the 1930s Germany had a jump on the rest of the world in atomic research. Other than the somewhat ambiguous highly classified information or material connected to the German rocket scientist Werner Von Braun and that whatever the Soviets absonded with was apparently secretly transported to Siberia by train, not much else was said. A GIANT SIX ENGINE BOMBER, DARK GREEN AND BLACK WITH GERMAN INSIGNIA CRASHED IN THE SEA OFF OWLS HEAD, MAINE With Strasser dead and the L-70 gone the New York raid was shelved. "If the Germans had pooled their resources, rather than keeping them divided among separate, rival experiments, they may have been able to build a working nuclear reactor," says Hiebert. October 20th was in fact the date when the Allies intercepted a diplomatic signal to Tokyo giving a table of performance details for the Ju-390, which was so explicit that it was impossible for a program of test flights to have established all this in just the last ten days of october 1944. ", The above graphic depicts a JU-52, the type troop transport that was on the recipient or loosing end of P-40s during the 100 plane North Africa "Goose Shoot." First, the mysterious German U-boat U-196 and secondly, as reported on this page, the potential possibility of not only a Nazi atomic bomb prior to the end of World War II, but also the actual testing of one. A four page illustrated story on the attack appeared in BLUE BOLT No. As found reported in ZEPPELINS: High Altitude Warships, near the end of World War I an attack on the city of New York, composed of three special type of rigid airships called Height Climbers, was being put into place and advocated by Korvettenkapitan Peter Strasser. By the end of 1944 there was only one company of men left at nearby Fort Brady. Unlike V-2s and the vast majority of other operational German retaliatory type rocketry weapons, which used liquid fuel which inturn would make transporting and use extremely difficult, the Rheintochter R 1 was solid fueled meaning it would be fully operational on a moments notice and able to withstand long term transportation over rough seas or tumultuous rivers without special handling. They had apparently solved the physics behind making a bomb, however the project to develop such a bomb was scrapped in mid-1942 when estimates stated that they would have it working no sooner than 1947, and only if they put their full focus behind it. As for back-up proof, there are two additional examples below that are highly involved in events surrounding the aforementioned German or Nazi atomic bomb, and if not substantiating the German nuke and it's detonation, put forward a strong case for same. One of the men who had a rudimentary use of English told my uncle they were Japanese, were testing soil samples for radioactivity, and had been left off in Mexico by submarine. At first he thought they were going to be made to get on the plane, but just short of doing so they were forced to their knees and he was sure he was going to be shot in back of the head. Confirmation of this is that RC+DA displays the white North Africa service fuselage band used up to May 1945 by LTS.290. "He was doing routine guard duty sometime around midnight out along the edges of the facility when he was taken to the ground by a group of armed men. The United States developed the first nuclear weapons during World War II in cooperation … No Ju-290 nor Ju-390 would have used this white band after May 1943. Kelly Johnson of the Lockheed Skunk works was his friend as well as Howard Hughes. Secret files reveal Nazis 'tested nuclear bomb' before end of WW2 as Adolf Hitler plotted to decimate Britain . The following article appeared in the London Daily Telegraph, Saturday, August 11, 1945, two days following the Nagasaki attack and almost one full year AFTER the actual alert was called: However, by the time the flight was to be put into motion the Azores had already fallen well within the sphere of the Allies and unavailable to the Axis. "Interestingly the photo snapped of RC+DA was taken during an attack on a Malta Convoy in 1942, suggesting this aircraft was possibly operated by LTS.290 in North Africa. For example, during World War I, except for fate intervening they came close --- and their method for their planned attack was within reason. The publication unit for the comic book was based in the city of New York with the art work for that particular story attributed to a man named Harry Ramsey, of which below is one of the pages: Ramsey has done a fairly good job on his rendition of the P-40s, but note the German bombers --- they are all six-engine models. Incredible images shows London during the Blitz of 1940-1941 and present day. A German historian has claimed in a new book that Nazi scientists successfully tested a tactical nuclear weapon in the last months of World War II. In 1985 a book titled The Japanese Secret War authored by Robert K. Wilcox was published. The first nuclear weapon was created by the United States of America during the Second World War and was developed to be used against the Axis powers. GHOST P-40: THE LORE, LEGENDS AND HER WHEREABOUTS He was tied up and gagged and put with a couple of other G.I.s he knew that were also pulling guard duty, all closely watched over on the tarmac by a guy with a grease gun looking weapon. The reknown Ju-390 test pilot Hans Werner Lerche in his autobiography refers to RC+DA in his book and mentions it as the other Ju-390. Did he just happen to look up from his drawing table on the afternoon of August 28, 1943 and see the fly over of the six-engine Junker and simply incorporate them into his story published January 1944 as though they as a bomber were an everyday German plane? The United States government became aware of the German nuclear program in August 1939, when Albert Einstein wrote to President Roosevelt, warning \"that it may become possible to set up a nuclear chain reaction in a large mass of uranium by which vast amounts of power and large quantities of new radium-like elements would be generated.\" The United States was in a race to develop an atomic bomb believing whoever had the b… Unknown to him at the time, that flash was associated with the first atomic device ever set off on the face of the earth.". With a few minor changes such as the tail section, from two vertical stabilizers to one, Ramsey used the same low level cartoonist's drawings for his own bomber inspiration. the capability to … The following is from Footnote [3] as found on the Goose Shoot page: What was Captain Liethen referring to when he wrote these words in a letter to his family? A few years after Adenauer left office, Germany ratified the 1968 nuclear non-proliferation treaty, which bars it from developing atomic weapons. The difficulty most historians have with such a claim is that the Ju-390's first flight is officially stamped into the records as happening two months later, on October 20 1943. Before the year 1943 was half over the War Department ordered that by September 1st the entire Sault area contingent be reduced to less than 2,500 officers and men. Confirmation of this is that RC+DA displays the white North Africa service fuselage band used up to May 1945 by LTS.290. "A copy of his photo of RC+DA was long held by the Museum in Vienna and published by German test pilot Hans Werner Lerche in his own autobiography. The photo of RC+DA is given credit to having been taken by a merchant seaman named Ron Wylie of convoy KMF-5 while in support of Operation TORCH. 1 Nuclear weapons technology was developed during the 1930s and 1940s. That air battle involved 46 P-40s shooting down a fleet of 100 fully loaded German Junker troop transports flying just above sea level escorted by 50 Messerschmitt fighters, apparently all fleeing Tunisia in a concerted last ditch effort to reach Sicily.
