The Horten 229 V3 “Flying Wing” 48 images – have you seen all of these before??

In 1943 the all-wing and jet-propelled Horten Ho 229 (‘aitch-oh-two-two-nine’) promised spectacular performance and the German air force (Luftwaffe) chief, Hermann Göring, allocated half-a-million Reich Marks to the brothers Reimar and Walter Horten to build and fly several prototypes. Numerous technical problems beset this unique design and the only powered example crashed after several test flights but the airplane remains one of the most unusual combat aircraft tested during World War II.

Also there are images of the building a static version of a 82″ span model for use as a reference for the Northrop Grumman team while they were building the full size model and the Horten Ho 229 cockpit mockup

  1. Did NAZI FLYING WINGS give birth to the explosion of strange sightings in 1947? First, it was Pilot Kenneth Arnold that saw nine Crescent Shaped aircraft that flew like a saucer would, if you skipped it across water. A reporter misunderstood and called them FLYING SAUCERS. Otherwise, we might have been calling them Giant Birds, or Triangles all these years…both incorrect..but did he see the result of efforts of German scientists in WWII. Nazis that we captured, as we did 100-V2 Rockets, thanks to Nazi Rocket Scientist Werner Von Braun and thousands of other Nazi rocket scientists, and then we called them all-NASA. TRUE. They got our Astronauts to the moon…FIRST. Search “OPERATION PAPERCLIP.”
