Attention is drawn to the thread on page 5/7 "Foo-fighters: Reality or Fiction" and in particular to the contribution of MAX the HIT MAN on 19 April 2004.
I begin with a quote: "Once the possibilities have been eliminated, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." (Arthur Conan Doyle; Agatha Christie).
The earlier thread made no mention of the rich vein of declassified material respecting "foo-fighters". Very many reports have been released by the US and British archives. For the most part they all have the same failing: they have been heavily censored. If we were dealing here with a natural phenomenon such as Weather Plasma, these reports would not have required the savage deletions to which they have been subjected.
A deletion in an official document is made to protect the issuing authority in some way. It may be an agent´s name: it may be something underhand that was done: it may be information respecting a weapon which the authority does not wish to be made public.
Let us take an example. Both the US and British authorities are agreed in their published summaries regarding the "foo-fighter" phenomenon that the objects were "invulnerable". No method could be found to shoot one down. If they knew that, somebody at some stage had to have made the attempt to do so. We search in vain through hundreds of documents with their extensive deletions to discover the answer to a single interesting question: When a "foo-fighter" was fired upon by an aircraft´s cannons, what happened to the bullets? I mean, did they seem to go straight through the thing, or were they rebounded or deflected by some kind of force field?
We are not told, and we are not told because it is something not in the public interest for us to know. Thus we are entitled to suspect that we are on the threshold to the greatest aeronautical mystery EVER.
(i) German scientists developed an anti-aircraft device which remains top secret because it had one singular property unknown to modern Western science.
(ii) German scientists postwar built full scale crewed aircraft at clandestine locations and these aircraft shared the singular property of the foo-fighter unknown to modern science.
(iii) All flying discs and other alleged German UFOs were hoaxes made primarily to disguise (i) and (ii) above,
WHAT WAS A "FOO FIGHTER"
A foo-fighter was a luminous rounded flying object observed and reported by hundreds of Allied aircrew between September 1943 and March 1945 over the Rhine. A lesser number of reports were filed by crews overflying Japanese controlled territory.
302 sightings were made by 140 crews of US XXI Bomber Command alone. (NARA Intelligence Publications, Air Int Report Volume 1, No 8, 26,IV.1945) and we may take these as a cross-section sample of the whole.
A large percentage of the sightings lasted only 2 to 3 minutes, but some continued for up to 15 minutes.
The "fireballs" were mostly described as around "six inches in diameter", "the size of a soccer ball", "about the size of a basketball". The colour of the illumination was described as a very strong white, although reds, yellows and ambers are also mentioned.
They were invulnerable and could not be shot down or damaged. They could not be picked up on radar. They emitted an electro-magnertic field which damaged aircraft radars. They also emitted great heat, and some aircraft reported scorch damage to the fuselage.
Fireballs approached Allied aircraft from the ground upwards. Between one and three fireballs would then take station about five metres from a wingtip. They were comfortable at 200 knots, but could be evaded at high speeds They seemed able to make up the lost distance if they had the opportunity after falling behind.
On a few occasions, foo-fighters appeared to be launched by German fighters.
REPORTS OF SPECIAL SIGNIFICANCE
Occasionally Allied aircrew reported that the objects fell out of control and were observed to crash and explode on the ground. This would confirm that they were material creations of human technology.
One RAF pilot and navigator, and one USAF air gunner, reported that a fireball transformed suddenly into a small aircraft "with a navigation lamp burning on the left wingtip".
These aberrations lead us to suspect that the "foo-fighters" were a German aerial device with a singular propensity.
The search now widens in pursuit of a German model aircraft. Dr Renato Vesco was an Italian scientist who worked on secret weapons projects at Lake Garda. In his book "Intercept But Don´t Shoot" (Grove Press, 1971) he described a German remote-controlled anti-aircraft device with a homing facility. It was known as KUGELBLITZ. This word means "ball-lightning" which is a plasmoid.
Vesco never saw a KUGELBLITZ for himself, but it was common talk amongst his scientific colleagues at Lake Garda. In his book he tries to work out how the thing worked. We need not go here into what he said, but one thing in his account we will find useful. Since an anti-aircraft device just goes up and explodes, he could not understand why the KUGELBLITZ needed a dual propulsion system. There was a hydrogen peroxide engine, and then there was an ion-mercury plasma engine, and for the life of him he didn´t know what the second one was for.
THE KUGELBLITZ IN ALLIED ARCHIVES
Was there a German anti-aircraft device known as KUGELBLITZ? Yes. There are two known declassified documents which describe the machine.
The British report appears in the BIOS intelligence publications. From this, we know that the KUGELBLITZ was an anti-aircraft device, had a hydrogen peroxide system. So, what of its speed, rate of climb, warhead, range, hull form? Mind your own business.
The American report was obtained recently under the Freedom of Information Act. The few patches not blacked out tell us that the KUGELBLITZ was an anti-aircraft weapon due to enter service in March 1945. For the remainder, see above.
Contributor MAX the HIT MAN thought foo-fighters were Weather Plasma. Actually this is quite a good guess. So, were the Germans working on an ion mercury plasma?
THE HIGHEST OF ALL NAZI PROJECTS
The highest known priority for any project in the Third Reich was "KRIEGSENTSCHEIDEND" - decisive for the war. Only one single project was awarded this category under the protocol of 21.7.1942., the AEG electrical giant´s project CHARITE ANLAGE. Directed by Dr Richard Craemer, it involved the use of tremendous voltages in a Plasma Physics project "which will last until at least the end of the war." It is known that this project involved spinning containers of mercury at fantastic speeds within a ceramic bell-shaped object.
Another scientist, Kurt Debus, elaborated the theory known as SEPARATION OF MAGNETIC FIELDS.
(See certificates issued 22 April 1943 and other documents in: NARA/RG Foreign Scientist Case Files K Debus, Box 28, US NAT Archive, College Park.)
HOW WOULD IT HAVE WORKED?
The foo-fighters were creations of German technology and were remote-controlled from German occupied territory.
It is generally known in Germany that the aircraft had a tortoise shape and probably resembled a midget Me 163.
At some point in its ascent the hydrogen peroxide engine cut out and the ion mercury plasma engine cut in and the craft moved into another magnetic field where, as we have seen, it lost its distinctive aircraft shape and became a fireball to the human eye. In Magnetic Field II it was invulnerable. It then homed calm as you like onto an Allied aircraft but did nothing.
The point was of course, that the craft was invulnerable in Magnetic Field II, but it worked both ways, and Allied aircraft were invulnerable to IT. In all probability, German scientists had not figured out at that stage how to get the foo-fighter out of Magnetic Field II into Magnetic Field I at altitude where it could explode alongside the Allied aircraft.
If this could have been achieved, the Reich would have regained air supremacy, for this was an anti-aircraft weapon with at least a 100% success rate - it would have exploded five metres from the aircraft fuselage giving the B-29 or Lancaster no chance or survival whatever.
It was a jolly good idea, but where those clever SS scientists at Wiener Neustadt got the technology maybe we shall never know.
If anybody has followed me this far, I will provide him next with evidence for Part (ii) of MY CREDO.
