As Hitler’s armies began to crumble on fronts as far apart as Stalingrad and North Africa, he turned in increasing desperation to his scientists to create a war-winning super-weapon.

Some, like the V2 rockets and the first jet fighters, saw action but came too late to halt defeat.

Now, according to a report in the Daily Mail, it is claimed that Hitler’s scientists had indeed designed a “flying-saucer” type of aircraft – and were so far advanced with the project that a prototype may even have flown.

The program, under the command of SS officer Hans Kammler, was said to have made significant breakthroughs with their experiments, says a report in the German science magazine PM.

It quotes eyewitnesses who believe they saw a flying saucer marked with the Iron Cross of the German military flying low over the Thames in 1944.

At the time, the New York Times had written about a ‘mysterious flying disc’ and published photos of the device traveling at high speeds over the city’s high-rise buildings.

The magazine says that the Germans destroyed much of the paperwork on their activities but in 1960 in Canada UFO experts managed to recreate the device which, to their amazement, ‘did actually fly’.

On several occasions prisoners of the Allies claimed to have seen the silvery flying saucer, which was about six yards across.

An engineer on the project said 15 prototypes were built.
