German Letter on Flying Saucers Translated – September 16 1952

In 1944 I And a group of scientists and technicians worked on a flying vessel that resembled the “flying saucers”. In order to be safe from aerial attacks and to be able to work undisturbed our group was transferred to Silesia. Our experiments were made with models, but they had to be conducted with the utmost haste, because this was “Hitler’s secret weapon”.”

Gentlemen,

I am sorry if I send this letter to you, but I have something to tell you

about the “Flying Saucers”

I am a German and my trade 18 AERONAUTICAL ENGINEER.

Please don’t think I look for a job In this trade. No, I Just want to tell you, what happened about this plane before all is over.

I am sorry if I write in the German language below,

my English grammar is too bad to tell you right (The above part is written in the English  language by (redacted) – The rest is in German. – Tr.)

I wish to emphasize once more that by writing this letter I do not seek employment or intend to make a name for myself in such an easy way. I wish to make this clear from the outset.

I think after all this tom-tom about these flying apparatuses it is time to say something about them and I therefore come to you. The noisy publicity accorded these objects must be known to you, and I want only to warn you about believing that these objects are emitted by the stars or that they are weather phenomena; if you did you would be on an entirely wrong track.

In 1944 I And a group of scientists and technicians worked on a flying vessel that resembled the “flying saucers”. In order to be safe from aerial attacks and to be able to work undisturbed our group was transferred to Silesia. Our experiments were made with models, but they had to be conducted with the utmost haste, because this was “Hitler’s secret weapon” according to the instructions of REICHSMARSHAL GOEHRING. We were under his direct command and our work separated us from the outside world. Even the letters to my wife had to be mailed to Berlin where they were censored.

In 1945 all was over. We decided to separate and reach the West in order to save at least something. Not all were successful. I learned later that the heads of our group, probably

some results of experiments, also drawings, were taken. A colleague of mine who escaped at the last moment reported this to me.

And now the apparatus itself;

After “WINDKANAL* (wind channel) there was built an experimental model of 3.6 meters wingspan. The driving force for the experiments’ were rockets. Steering drive – remote

control -, guiding was similar to the FX – bombs, which undoubtedly are known to you; also release-steering (“RELEISSTEUERUNG” in the original, – Tr.)

– 2 –

The results were astounding and exceeded all our expectations as far as flight and technique are concerned. It would take too long to describe everything in detail. You are assisted by a staff of scientists, and I can only suggest that you keep on working at this in order to avoid a situation where you think you are in the forefront of science only to find out that a certain country (“ERDENTEIL” – continent in the original Tr.) is 10 years ahead. I am thinking of the Jet pilots in Korea

Please, do not think that I, an Insignificant person, want to tell you what to do, – no – I only want to beg you not to be swayed by differing opinions about things which actually exist.

Some may perhaps say that this German wants us Canadians etc. But, please, gentlemen, the question is not: who has invented this thing first; what matters is – not to be the last and not to be confronted with accomplished facts in case of a decision.

I hope you understand me. Although It is not my duty to talk about it, but I think the fact that these things exist absolves me of any obligations of secrecy to the builder, made at that time.

With friendly greetings and good wishes for success in your work,

(Redacted)

P.S. I am taking the liberty of informing also the “Air-vice Commander” of the U.S.A. Air Force.
