Nazis were close to WWII stealth bomber

By T.K. Randall

The Nazis were very close to completing work on an early prototype stealth bomber aircraft towards the end of World War II, the shape and coating of the craft would have rendered it virtually invisible to enemy radar.
Nazi engineers were dangerously close to building a stealth warplane shielded from radar that could have changed the outcome of World War II. "

agreed the German Air Force were quite a way from actually produceing in any numbers the Horten2-29 Though it actually did T.O & Land I bet the report back to the design people went Something like this. " YOu want me to Fly that where? For How Long? " Even todays tech,has to work in the giga bits of computer processng powers to Let the F-117`s B-2 `s fly. And I really want to see a closer look at just where they intended to store the 1,000kg bombs of the time?

Just noticed a striking similarity between the German stealth plane and the shape of the UFOs reported by Kenneth Arnold in 1947 and Could Kenneth Arnold have seen some USAF recreations of the Nazi plane created as a result of Operation Paperclip? It's certainly plausible. It's also a solid case to debunk some theories where the stealth technology came from Roswell debris.

Thats kind of wierd how similar those are. Makes you think a bit. Hmm. Not UFO, but long range nazi tests. Doubtful yes.

The Nazi's were far ahead of us in technology. The problem is that while they were trying to develop something that would be a major war changer we chose to produce lower tech equipment. However, our stuff could be easily mass produced and maintained. As for our prop planes being able to keep up with their jets, this was only possible in a dive. However, our pilots perfected this technique.
