Re: Luftwaffe Flight From Russia to China.

... Springs on the island bubble up Plutonium which is quite odd since it is generally not a naturally occurring element. What lead you to that conclusion? If I had intended to draw a conclusion I would have stated it. The only conclusion I can draw LWD is that you have hysterical over-reaction to ...

Independent of what LWD? ??? Are you really that unfamiliar with the terminology? If so it brings any analysis you've performed to question. Here is an example: Individual A reports that xxx is on yyy. Individual B reads A's report and writes it up in his blog. Individual C reads 's report as well ...

Re: Do 17Z Ram Jet

Yes this was the Lorin Ramjet tested on a Do-217E at Nantes IIRC. http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh212/727Kiwi/do217e2tr8.jpg It was the testbed of a ramjet intended for use on Lippisch P.13B and the transatlantic cruise missile Trommsdorf D-6000 Fernglieter. Below is the Lippish P.13A http://i2...

Re: Luftwaffe Flight From Russia to China.

Further to earlier questions raised about the conflicting figures about the Ju-390, details of the Ju-390 performance as certified by October 1943 were related to the Japanese and decrypted from a MAGIC intercept as follows: http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh212/727Kiwi/Ju-390/Ju390performancetab...

Re: Luftwaffe during D-day/Normandy campaign

My father who was on LCH187 at Arromanches on 6 June 1944 reported to me seeing at least one Ju-88 flying so low along that it raised plumes of spray from it's propellers just metres above the sea. For many years I also had a photo of an Oyster mine splashing into the water inside the Mulberry at Ar...

Re: Luftwaffe Flight From Russia to China.

Still, as any science teacher would tell you, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. the indirect evidence of fuel drums with German lettering and long runways in the Kurile Islands, The drums may be evidence of something what is far from clear. Given that the Soviets installed their own f...

Re: Luftwaffe Flight From Russia to China.

i thought the 264 was used as a test bed for jet engines and general messerschmitt tinkering between 1941-44 at Lechfield. Milch forbade any further work on the completed prototype and the other 2 half built were scrapped. If there was a possibility of flights to Japan with it surely they would hav...

Re: Luftwaffe Flight From Russia to China.

There has indeed been some considerable discussion of it. In a similar vein there has been considerable discussion of German and Japanese atomic weapons. However the overwhelming evidence is agaist them. And in 2000 B.C.E. there was probably a lot of discussion about the world. And most of the disc...
