On a less 'Sci-fi' note, on 20th.October 1943, a Junkers Ju390V1, a six-engined heavy bomber made its first flight. It was specifically designed to bomb targets on the American continent, and initially proved so successful that after another test flight by a Ju390V2, an order was placed for 26 operational aircraft but the programme was cancelled in June 1944 to allocate dwindling resources to projects of a more defensive nature.
