I'm sure a lot of people here have heard about Admiral Byrd and the claimed meeting he had with UFO's in the Antarctic, but there is another
theory... lets take a look.
In late 1938, just before WW2, Byrd visited Hamburg and was invited to participate in the 1938/1939 German "Neuschwabenland" Antarctic Expedition by
the Nazis. Byrd had a great knowledge of the Antarctic area, he had already been on several expeditions there previously. However Byrd declined.
On 17 December 1938 the New Swabia Expedition left Hamburg for Antarctica aboard the Schwabenland, a freighter capable of carrying and catapulting
aircraft. The expedition had 33 members plus the Schwabenland's crew of 24. In January 1939 the ship arrived in an area already claimed in 1938 by
Norway as Dronning Maud Land and began charting the region. In the following weeks 15 flights were made by the ship’s two Dornier Wal aircraft named
Passat and Boreas over an area reported as about 600,000 square kilometres (although others have claimed the area flown over was half this size). More
than 16,000 aerial photographs were taken but these are still considered useless since they consist of more or less endless white images with no
indications of latitude or longitude. To assert Germany’s claim to newly named Neu-Schwabenland three German flags were placed along the coast
and 13 more were air-dropped further inland. Some accounts claim these markers were 1.5-metre (5 ft)-tall iron poles topped with a swastika.
It is claimed that the Nazis were setting up a secret base for advanced weapon and flight experiments as well as a place to escape should the war not
go to plan. This was also detailed in newspapers of the time in the "Vierjahresplan" (The Four Year Plan) promoting the Third Reich's plan to
colonize the Neuschuabenland.
The Nazi expedition discovered several ice free regions with lakes and small signs of vegetation. The expedition's geologists said that this
phenomenon was due to hot springs. This discovery led to Heinrich Himmler to hatch a bold plan to build a permanent base in Antarctica. That base was
code named "Station 211". Admiral Karl Doenitz announced its completion in 1943 saying "The German submarine fleet is proud of having built for the
Fuhrer, in another part of the world, a Shangri-La on land, an impregnable fortress." There are many stories around Station 211, one of which details
a supposed treasure room which held the Holy Lance--the spear that pierced the side of Jesus Christ on the cross... but that's another story.
This may sound hard to believe, that the Nazis set up a base in the Antarctica, however there is an interesting article in the New York Times from
NAZI BASE REPORTED IN ANTARCTIC AREA; Repair Shop at Deception Bay, 500 Miles From South America, Is Blown Up BYRD MAKES DISCLOSURE Admiral at Boston
Greets Ship Returning With Members of United States Expedition
And as you can see Byrd is mentioned again.
Why Antarctica? During the Nazi expeditions to Tibet they were given access to the secret cave systems of the Tibetan Monks that had not been seen for
centuries. The Tibetans believed the arrival of the Nazis fulfilled their own prophecies that would usher in a new age of enlightenment. During the
exploration of the caves by the Nazis, it is claimed that a secret volume of ancient texts from pre-flood times or even from Atlantis were found.
These texts are supposed to have detailed where the opening to the hollow earth could be found and Hitler believed that an Aryan race dwelling there
would help them win the war.
I'm sure we've all seen the pictures of Nazi made flying saucers.... if not here is a link to some of the supposed pictures -
Were these what Byrd had encountered during Operation High Jump?
Operation High Jump
After WW2 Admiral Byrd was sent to Antarctica, publicly it was just a research expedition, however the amount of manpower sent was huge compared to
the Nazi "Neuschwabenland" Antarctic Expedition.
The massive Antarctic task force included 4,700 men, 13 ships, and multiple aircraft.
It is claimed that after WW2 Adolph Hitler did not commit suicide in 1945, but fled to Argentina, then on to Station 211 in Antarctica. Numerous Nazi
submarines went missing after WW2 and it is supposed that these were used to transport Hitler and others.
Was Operation High Jump a cover to finish off Hitler? With the amount of manpower sent, it could be the case and considering the military tactics
taken, with a 3 pronged approach to Antarctica. Towards the end of Operation High Jump, Byrd had one last outing over Antarctica, this is when the
famous missing 3 hours occurred. Did he meet Hitler? Did he meet UFO's? or did he just get lost?
Here is a great documentary of Operation High Jump... as it happened... including the missing 3 hours (around 49 mins of the film), I didn't even
know this existed until a few days ago -
The Secret Land
It gives a good idea of the scale of this operation.
Operation High Jump was designed to last 8 months however they returned after two weeks, loosing many heavy equipment and planes.
On the way back Byrd gave an interview to the prestigious Chilean newspaper El Mercurio of Santiago on 5 March 1947. The article by Lee van Atta
entitled "Admiral Richard E Byrd refers to the Strategic Importance of the Poles" had been sent from "On Board Mount Olympus on the High Seas".
The article states "Admiral Byrd declared today that it was imperative for the United States to initiate defence measures against the possible
invasion of the country by hostile aircraft operating from the polar regions. As regards the recently terminated expedition, Byrd said that the most
important result of the observations and discoveries made is the current potential effect which they will have on the security of the United
There is more but I will have to post the reast at a later date... enjoy.
