    Awww, that pic of good Mr. Paxton was a real sucker punch, Simon! Loved his crazy career. Since I had few expectations in Tom Cruz’s “Live, Die, Repeat” it was a huge plus to see a lean, mean Bill Paxton giving hell as a DI.
    Nue Schwabenland, Operation Highjump — all real enough. What exactly those two things actually did is not controversial but downright mysterious. Not at all sure any German aircraft landed just before or during the war. They did an aerial survey and dropped metal spikes with swastikas on them (now, THAT’S worth a trip to find…). All “bases” and any Nazi-era sites or enclaves are supposition as far as I know.
    I love me my Hannebu designs all to death as much as the next guy, but I also know that there are no real good drawings of the craft during wartime… nothing I’ve seen. And that design SURE looks like George Adamski’s saucer, around 1955… And he took pictures of his (The Flying Saucers Have Landed — for one). Took a while for people to notice, but the saucers looked just like a baby chick warming gadget– complete with lightbulbs on the bottom…
    And here’s my point: whatever else those Nazis were, they were obsessed with photography. So where are the pictures? I’d like one picture taken on the ice of anything… a soldier, a doorway in a rock, an under-ice hanger– maybe a German plane– okay, a saucer! But no pics… not one. George Adamski knew “pictures don’t lie” so he took a bunch of good ones.

      As usual, you know your stuff. I agree on the lack of images, hard to explain. In actuality, George Adamski’s famous close up image proved to be the top of a German vacuum cleaner. But some material he showed seems to be genuine. Seems that he would add fake to the real, to keep himself in the limelight.

      There are possibly some images of the “Glocken”‘ could be naming wrong here, or, the “Bell”, which was supposed to be a Saucer type flying machine. However, legend has it, that it was unstable, and was never fully developed.

      As you know, no one is allowed free access to Antartica, mmmm….perhaps there is something we are not supposed to see?

      Operation “High Jump” is indeed a mystery, a fascinating story that reads lke a science fiction story. Some say Admiral Bird was a looney, but it seems unlikely that a man that highly placed would be so. Why did they retreat so soon in the mission, and how did all that damage occur?

      A weird film called “Iron Sky” really pushed this story to a new level, but in comedy format.

      Thanks for the input Eliot, very interesting post.

    Mind blowing work as usual, but then again I would not expect anything less.
