Hitler's obsession with the occult and astrology is well known - but
evidence that his aerospace and rocket scientists were plundering alien
technology to build Nazi UFOs has never gripped the public imagination.
Maurizio Verga's tantalising web pages reveal Werner von Braun and the
Luftwaffe design teams could have been guided by extraterrestrials, perhaps
looting interstellar components from a crashed spaceship.
Rumours of the Third Reich's underground bases first surfaced in the
Forties, coinciding with the birth of UFO sightings. America's Operation
Paperclip was at full throttle, with the FBI smuggling Nazi war criminals
into America to take advantage of their scientific expertise.
Former Nazis gave America the space race edge, and von Braun's career
followed a smooth flightpath from pilotless V2 rockets to Apollo 11 and the
first manned moon landing.
Verga believes the Luftwaffe developed a flying disc, in the classic
shape, which flew at Prague on February 14, 1945. His photographic evidence
is almost certainly faked by Fifties sci-fi fans. Visit his site to enjoy
the artist's impressions, which are a glorious delight. It may not be a
coincidence that Americans began sighting flying saucers within three years
of the alleged Prague test-flight and von Braun's escape to America.
Countless UFO reports of the early Eighties turned out to be sightings
America's Stealth Bombers. Is it possible that the US Air Force did develop
Nazi technology to build a fleet of saucers 50 years ago, producng the
first wave of Unidentified Flying Objects?
And if those spacecraft were for real, the chilling question remains:
are the menacing objects reported nightly in Nineties skies?
