My son, an inhabitant of the Interweb and avid seeker of the weird and wonderful, sent me this link the other day. It concerns the development of a plane, by the Nazis during WWII that MIGHT have had stealth capabilities (according to the report) http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2009/06/090625-hitlers-stealth-fighter-plane.html Now, I'm pretty skeptical, mainly because it presupposes a pretty advanced knowledge of the application of radar, something that the supposedly technically-advanced Germans showed that they simply didn't have at the time. It's easy to re-write history in hindsight and put complexions on things that weren't even thought of at the time. It was the British who had radar sussed and it was, of course, their superiority in this field that had a marked effect on the progress of, and the ultimate winning of, the air war between 1939 and 1945. Having said that, this plane was very advanced and was remarkable prescient of the Northrop "Flying Wing" aircraft developed in America immediately after WWII. I found it fascinating.
