Omega Diskus???

Post by Jean Navarre » 08 Oct 2002 17:05

I would like to share opinions about the legends (?) or actual true stories concerning the supposed Flyng Diskus made by the Germans at the end of the WW2. According to my information, the project was made by Dr. Ing. Andreas Epp, and the so-called Omega Diskus flew, but without operational use.

In authorized books and researchs about the secret Luftwaffe designs in WW2 (such the Myrha's books), I did not found information about the Omega Diskus.

"NEW YORK TIMES," December 14, 1944: "Floating Mystery Ball Is New German Weapon. SUPREME HEADQUARTERS, Allied Expeditionary Force, Dec. 13 -- A new German weapon has made its appearance on the western air front, it was disclosed today. "Airmen of the American Air Force report that they are encountering silver colored spheres in the air over German territory. The spheres are encountered either singly or in clusters. Sometimes they are semi-translucent."
...and, "SUPREME HEADQUARTERS Dec. 13 [Reuters] -- The Germans have produced a 'secret' weapon in keeping with the Christmas season.

"The new device, apparently an air defense weapon, resembles the huge glass balls that adorn Christmas trees. There was no information available as to what holds them up like stars in the sky, what is in them or what their purpose is supposed to be."

One person who made claims regarding the development of ‘flying saucers’ in Nazi Germany is former Luftwaffe Flight Captain and aircraft designer Rudolph Schriever. He claimed in 1950 that he and a small team had worked at facilities near Prague developing a saucer-type vehicle.

This story first appeared in ‘Der Spiegel’ magazine on 30th March 1950 in an article entitled ‘Untertassen-Flieger Kombination’ which stated "… Rudolph Schriever, who says engineers throughout the world experimented in the early 1940s with flying saucers, is willing to build one for the United States in six to nine months. The 40-year-old Prague University graduate said he made blueprints for such a machine, which he calls a flying top, before Germany’s collapse and that the blueprints were stolen from his laboratory. He says the machine would be capable of 2,600mph with a radius of 4,000 miles, Schriever is a US Army driver at Bremerhaven." (3)

His claims are backed up by a 1975 Luftfahrt International Report that noted that after Shriever’s death in the late 1950s, papers found amongst his belongings revealed incomplete notes for a large flying saucer, a series of sketches of the machine and several newspaper clippings of himself and his alleged flying saucer. Up to his death, Schriever had repeatedly claimed that the UFO sightings since the end of the war were proof that his original ideas had been taken further with successful results.

Is this story believable?

I watched a documentary titled "Hitler's Secret Science" and Jorg Schauberger discusses how his grandfather, Hugo, believed that his flying saucer design could work if it used vacuum-based propulsion, in which case external air would propel it upward.

Is there any significance in the fact that none of the links from this topic are active?
I get various error messages for each of them

The story of circular aircraft developed by German technical personnel has been obscured. Joseph Andreas Epp wrote a book about his work.
