A timeline of Nazi UFO development, including actions associated with operation highjump.
Evaluation of the anti-gravity propulsion of a nearly 100% functional flying saucer going down in the "Schwarzwald" summer 1936
Alternative hypothesis: Self-developing this propulsion by experiments of German scientists basing on Viktor Schauberger´s anti-gravity
first unmanned flights with the new (re-)build propulsion. A very special section of the "Reichsluftfahrtbehörde" gets the project under its
control with the aim to build up anti-gravital fighters and troop carriers. The project's name is "HANEBBU"(some sources also call it the "VRIL
"project). The prototypes are numbered in ascending order. The project has many setbacks in the first years due to the massive electro-magnetic
disturbances and their interaction with conventional electric components. Although the propulsion can be handed and used principally, it seems to be
nearly impossible to "drive or fly" these prototypes in sharper angels than 90°, thus not usable as fighters. Additionally normal navigation systems
referring somehow to magnetic fields were completely useless and a special, magnetic independent navigation instrumentation designed, the celestial
guidance system: "Meisterkompass" and "Peiltochterkompass"
Further secret German expeditions to "NEUSCHWABENLAND". As landing points, there could have been used two of the three marked landing bays
north-west of the "MÜHLIG-HOFFMAN MOUNTAINS" close to 3° W and 70° S. Those were already documented as landing bays by Ritscher.
from 1942/43 on
Starting the assemblage of the Antarctic base 211. Simultaneously a second secret base is build up on a high plateau in the Southamerican Anden.
Necessary items for the errection of the bases are continuously transported on submarines.
Note: German submarine commanders are highly experienced in the arctic waters due to the need of delivery of material and people to Germany's
northern arctic bases and civilian research stations. In fact at least 20 well documented operations have taken place along the arctic until 1945 by
means of these submarines. Some of these operations, especially the later ones, had to be carried out under extreme conditions and with the permanent
threat of contact with the enemy. Besides, on their way to the south pole, researchers discovered somewhat like a straight deep submarine trench
fitting pretty well for the necessary transportations.
The "HANNEBU" series has left the stadium of prototypes and brought up to 19-25 ships in 2 (or even 3) sizes. "HANEBU I" is a small vessel,
"HANNEBU II" a more sophiscated, larger one. Some reports even hint at "HANNEBU III", which was designed as a mother ship. If this third type has
become reality, there existed only one single ship. So, the overall transport capacities are still very limited, due to a quite small diameter of the
disks. Additionally production of ships gets more and more difficult, because the Allied manage to cut of Germany's raw materials more and more. Yet
"HANNEBUs" manage to disturb some allied bomber raids over Germany.
Note. Every allied bomber pilot in the recent years of the war knows the mysterious threat of the so called "foe-fighters" appearing and vanishing
with incredible speed and causing bright-orange light phenomenon's and paroxysmale instrumentation failures on all electric and magnetic parts of the
bombers. In no source a direct attack by these "foe-fighters" is mentioned, they seem to play a completely defensive role on the late air war over
Germany. Although the overall effect is minimal and has no more influence on the proceed of the war.
The enormous pressure of the Allied forces the Germans to give up the big secret underground facilities in Eastern Germany. They Allied themselves
seem to be pretty well informed on these facilities and overall eager to capture them. There Germans flee and leave back much material of the HANNEBU
project. The attempt to rebuild the construction zones in the mid of Germany failes. The war is nearly over.
"... I have seen enough of their designs and production plans to realize that if they (the Germans) had managed to prolong the war some months
longer, we would have been confronted with a set of entirely new and deadly developments in air warfare"
(Sir Roy Feddon, chief of the technical mission to Germany for the Ministry for Aircraft Production in 1945)
"When WWII ended, the Germans had several radical types of aircraft and guided missiles under development. The majority were in the most preliminary
stages, but they were the only known craft that could even approach the performance of objects reported to UFO observers..."
(Captain Edward J. Ruppelt Chief of the US Air Force Project "Bluebook" on 1956)
late in April 1945
A last convoy of submarine vessels leaves German Harbors with direction Antarctica and Anden. It is the overall successful attempt to escape the
Allied´s clutches. Among this last convoy there are the U 530 (Captain Otte Wehrmut) and the U977m (Captain Heinz Schäffer).
The last visual contact with U977 was on April 26th at Christiansund. Schäffer´s crew did not reveal anything about the submarine's destination
or load. The vessel vanishes now for nearly 4 months, before the crew delivers a completely empty vessel to Argentinean Officials.
In the same way, leading NS-Officials and technical are evacuated from Berlin/Potsdam with the HANEBU fleet heading to the meanwhile completed (?)
base 211. The overall transport capacities are quite limited.
The submarine convoy achieves in the southern Atlantic Sea a sea victory over an Allied unit trying to stop it. This event is under wraps until
17.August 1945 (!)
Some submarine crews who are not willing to live in the base or who perhaps can't be admitted to the base travel to Argentine and hand over their
completely empty submarines.
Among those are at documented cases of U530 and U977. High US Navy officials immediately traveled down to Argentine and started severe interrogations
on the crew. Scgäffer repeatedly denied to have brought anyone one or anything to anywhere. Although most of the crew are unwilling to tell what
really happened, it is possible that these interrogations deliver important information about the location of the base . Yet for us, it remains very
mysterious what the crew really did after the official capitulation on Mai 1945, for they confessed to have heard it soon on their own radio. When
Schäffer came free, he immediately traveled back to Argentine to stay there with some fellows for the rest of his life.
Until today more than 100 submarines of the German fleet are missing. Among those are many of the highly technological XXII class equipped with the
so-called " Walterschnorchel" a special designed and coated schnorkel enabling submarines in combination with their new developed engines to dive
for many thousand miles. A "trip" to the base without recognition becomes pretty possible with this technology.
The US Navy tries to destroy the German base which did not surrender at the end of war. The operation is a disaster. The base remains functional, at
least is parts.
More than one year after the surrending of U977 the US NAVY launches the biggest military operation in the Antarctic ice under the command of Admiral
Richard E. Byrd. This is the operation "HIGHJUMP", including 13 ships, 1 aircraft carrier, 2 seaplane tenders, 6 two-engined R4D transports and 4000
men stuff. The only official statement on the purpose of such a task force is the need for testing "new material under the extreme Antarctic
conditions." The force starts up at the established US bases in the "ROSS SEA", then it moves up the western Antarctic coast heading toward the
Northern Antarctic coast, "NEUSCHWABENLAND" and builing up a bridgehead on January 27th 1947 somewhere west of it. Officially the expedition is a
big success because it delivers many new facts of the use of military equipment under extreme conditions.
What is the need of such a big task force in this area ?
IF the expedition was such a success, WHY did Byrd already return to the US in February 1947 ? The operation was planned and equipped for a full 6-8
Did this expedition carry atomic warheads as some sources say ?
later than 1945 (?)
Byrd´s diary and flight log:
On another expeditional flight, a copy of Byrd´s flight diary reveals that Byrd and his radio operator flying C-47 exploratory craft was seized down
softly by two flying saucers. Byrd lost control of the plane and its instruments and flight controls, the prop-driven C-47 went down very much like a
helicopter. As the plane landed this way, two tall men, both blond and Germanic looking escorted him and his radio operator to an underground
facility, where he was assigned with giving the following message to the "surface governments": Stop exploding nuclear weapons for you will most
assuredly experience difficult times ahead. That was all, Byrd and his companion were escorted back to their plane. The strange race said something
very similar to "Auf Wiedersehen"( German, "Good by") when they went, calling their own discs "FLUGERODS" (unknown in German expression)
Byrd flew 1947 at least one time in a right-twisted circle across the whole territory "NEUSCHWABENLAND" haeding from southwest over the "RITSCHER
HOCHLAND" and the eastern areas to the Pole.
If you have ANY available information on BYRD´S Antarctic (4 at all), please mail me immediatley. Thanks !
On his return to the US, Byrd reveals in a (often quoted but nowhere validated) Interview with a reporter that it was "necessary for the USA to take
defensive actions against enemy air fighters which come from the polar regions" and that in case of a new war, the USA would be attacked by fighters
that are able to fly from one pole to the next with incredible speed".
Byrd has to face a secret cross examination by US authorities. The US withdraws from the Antarctic for almost a decade.
World wide mass sightings of UFOs. In the late 70´s it becomes more and more obvious that many of these sightings are identical in some technical
details with the "HANEBU" series. This can be stated especially for the so called "ADAMSKY" UFOs in the early fifties. Which somehow look very
terrestrial, nearly in "fashion style" of this decade and somehow very different from the rest of flat-bottomed crafts.
The International Antarctic year with large civilian research projects starts. The result is the Antarctic treaty in which all participants agree to
avoid any military operations this region in future times. This treaty ends somwhere in the year 2000.
