Group Captain Malcolm Scott, Royal Air Force

On August 7th we awoke at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan to find all the Americans were gone. Why? This left only 430 British, German and French military people to defend this airbase! We found out that President Biden without consulting his NATO allies, decided to pull everyone out without telling the rest of us! Outside in the countryside was more than 4,000 Taliban, who for the moment did not know this either!
Luckily we had 87 members of the French Foreign Legion who organized the Afghan Army, who numbered 326 chaps, who had not been paid in three months by the corrupt Afghan Government to fight with us.
The next day the Taliban found out that the Americans abandoned us, and they mounted a full assault. After six hours of fighting they pulled back with massive losses. We had eight helicopter gunships flown by British pilots and they showed no mercy to these Terrorists.
The French Foreign Legionaires killed hundreds of them and so did our German troops.
The next day came another assault and they captured part of the airbase, the hospital. 26 British, French and German Nurses were captured and raped by the Taliban.
All night we could hear their screams and wondered why President Biden would abandon us to the mercy of the Taliban!
Less than 250 of us were now alive, and we had no more fuel for our helicopters, low on ammo, almost without hope except the French. These soldiers were looking forward to killing more of these Taliban and they walked around smiling!
Let me tell you I am not that tough or brave! Suddenly the radio told us that three airships were coming in to pick us up! We went outside and three massive Russian Antonov Cargo planes landed. Other smaller disc like objects were overhead and the Taliban began to die screaming by the hundreds. Not by guns and bullets, but by high frequency Microwaves, which caused their eyes to explode and destroyed and fried their brains! I had never seen so many Taliban die so quickly! In the distance we could see Anna Kreisling walking towards us and directing us into the massive Cargo Jets. We flew out happy to be alive, and Anna came and congratulated us on holding out as long as we did. She gave each member of the French Foreign Legion a bottle of Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey and said they were magnificent soldiers! All of us toasted our good luck to be alive.

Anna Kreisling KG-200, 19.08.2021 03:26

My heart really goes out to the people of Afghanistan. In 1938 Heinrich Himmler sent me on a mission to Tibet and Afghanistan to find the origins of the Master Race. Ernst Schafer the leader of this expedition was convinced that the Aryan Race began in Tibet. While I was in Afghanistan I was amazed at how the Children were so intelligent and kind, many with Green eyes from the genetic genes of Alexander the Great's Army.
This is why Joe Biden is such a racist scumbag. The people of Afghanistan are intelligent and are worth saving! The women and children of Afghanistan are worth saving! America used to stand for Freedom and Justice for all. Not the rich in New York city, but for all people!
Will Joe Biden abandon Europe? Taiwan? Hong Kong? The logic of Joe Biden is that California should be given to China so we won't make them angry! What a Loser and Coward he is. When he came to office he bragged about what a great leader he was going to be, but now the Marx Brothers or the THREE STOOGES can do a better job!

President Joe Biden USA, 12.08.2021 04:28

Well folks, just wanted to let you know that Bernie and me are in Sturgis for the Big Harley Davidson Cocaine and Strippers Rally! I came riding in on my Harley Wide Glide wearing a Silvery G-String and a Raccoon Skin Hat!! Bernie came riding in with me on his Vespa Scooter and dressed like the FLYING NUN,,SMOKING A HUGE HAVANA CIGAR!! The local girls started screaming when they saw my bony white wrinkled butt!! Man they thought I was Elvis!
This is what America is all about!! Riding your Harley, coming into towns with my Bro Bernie, and scaring the crap out of all the Republicans,,,man they see my Butt and they go to running!

Dear Dr. Larson UCLA,
During the war Hitler had five doubles that stood in for him from time to time. On August 25 and 26th 1943 Adolf Hitler was in Norway with the entire Nazi High Command to attend a party for Anna Kreisling and Hans Pancherz. This information was collected by British Intelligence who had agents at this party.
They describe Anna Kreisling at the party was adorned with a diamond white dress that was barely there, she was completely topless with a black mask and a German Eagle adorned on her head. She made her entrance with Hitler and Heinrich Himmler.
Inside this massive hangar was the Junkers JU-390 that was ready to fly to Canada, Michigan and then on to New York.
All of this was reported to London, which at the time was not believed by Winston Churchill and was never passed on to the Americans. Why? Because the British had sightings of Hitler at the Wolf's Lair and why would Hitler want to attend such a party??
The British Agents also reported on the take-off of the Junkers JU-390 using rockets to assist. But it was the pictures of Anna Kreisling that almost caused Winston Churchill to swallow his cigar! He yelled at MI6 that these agents in Norway were having to good of a time taking pictures of her gorgeous tanned butt, and what were they doing at this party??

President Xi Jinping CHINA, 23.07.2021 02:44

Dear President Joe Biden,
Your comments about President Trump, that all he did was work for the benefit of Russia is untrue. President Vladimir Putin of Russia talked with TRUMP for hours to arrest Anna Kreisling so he could bring her to Moscow in chains. But TRUMP said No,,,very firmly many times to him, why?? Because Anna Kreisling is an American Citizen and can not be arrested and handed over to the Russians! Also she knows so many of our National Secrets and as Flight Director at AREA 51,,she is protected by the CIA and the NSA. As you can see President TRUMP did not bow to Russian demands.
Dear President Joe Biden, we in CHINA want to help you with all the problems you are having with your newest Aircraft Carrier the U.S.S. Gerald FORD. $2 Billion Dollars over your budget and you can't get this ship sailing?? Have you Americans forgot hot to build an Aircraft Carrier?? We in CHINA are building 150 light attack Aircraft Carriers, with our new NAVY we are going to conquer the Phillipines, Vietnam, Hawaii, Japan and even Australia. Soon we will have the largest NAVY in the world,,,and you will still be working on your U.S.S. Gerald FORD!! What a bunch of losers you Yankee Dogs are! How do you like dem Apples Joe??

Anna Kreisling KG-200, 04.07.2021 20:19

Happy 4th of July, America!
My best wishes go out to our troops around the world. No nation has finer troops than the United States of America. The German Children during the Berlin Airlift received chocolates and food from the American Pilots and troops. In Afghanistan more than 375,000 children received food and medical attention. No other soldiers in the world do more for children than the American soldiers!
I have a lot to be thankful for, if I had been captured by the Russians in 1945 I would have been raped and brutally tortured to death. Instead soldiers from Patton's Tank Army captured me and put me to work pouring coffee and later helped me feed the children in Germany.
America has a great and proud history, you should never give up teaching about George Washington and our founding fathers. Do not listen to these Communist Leftist Morons who want to destroy and revise American History.
So get out there and celebrate, support your Police, take pride in the American Flag, salute it and cherish it. Pass on to your children American Values of Truth, justice and the American way of life. Take your children to church and teach them how to shoot. This way they will never let the Communists and Criminals take away their rights as Americans!

Dr. Karen Powers UCLA, 18.06.2021 03:22

To: President Vladimir Putin CCCP,

Recent UFO activity over the Atlantic and Pacific oceans is pointing to the fact that these are not Alien Spacecraft. Recent documents given to Congress clearly shows that they are Nazi spacecraft developed at AREA 51.
On top of the mountains surrounding AREA 51 we have observed spacecraft coming into land at speeds over 4,000 m.p.h. this is after slowing down from 18,000 m.p.h. Most of these are unmanned spacecraft,,but sometimes human pilots emerge from these craft.
Further proof lies in the fact that Anna Kreisling is the Flight Director of AREA 51, a fact that every member of Congress knows, if they bother to read their Intelligence Reports, which 95% do not.
What really makes me mad is that all of Congress and the Senate and Joe Banana Head Biden care about are the size of Anna Kreisling's breasts and how great she looks naked.
They do not care about Nazi technical achievements or the fact that they are 75 years more advanced than anything NASA can build! They just want to see pictures of her beautiful Tits straining against a black lace bra!!
America has the dumbest leaders in the world! Donald Duck can do a better job than Donald Trump, and Joe Biden now has 24,786 children locked up in cages and he keeps saying that there is no crisis at the Border!!

President Vladimir Putin CCCP, 04.05.2021 01:09

Dear President Joe Biden USA,
So why did you bow to the Red Chinese demand that you remove the article,,The Most Dangerous Photo Recon Mission of World War II ???
I thought you said that America does not Censor or Remove articles??? Why do the Communist Chinese have so much power over you??
Anna Kreisling and 55,000 other Nazi's were brought to America in 1946 under Operation Paperclip. I have demanded that you arrest her and send her to Moscow for trial. But you refuse, but now you are censoring all articles about her?? Why?? Are you embarassed about your own history???

Dr. Alex Buchanan YALE, 25.03.2021 05:49

Here are Five Major points you should consider,
1. Virtually all the records of KG-200 were burned. Many of these records were burned by OSS and British agents. Why?? The biggest Secret of World War II was the co-operation between Himmler and the SS and OPERATION PAPERCLIP.
2. There is film footage of Anna Kreisling landing at Wright Patterson AFB in 1946 being greeted by Werner Von Braun.
3. There are over 878 pictures of German Nazi artifacts that have been found on Mars by NASA!
4. Why was Joseph Stalin obsessed about Operation Paperclip and the fact that Hitler was not found in Berlin!!
5. Finally, why did the United States develop two types of Atomic Bombs in World War II??? Look at the pictures of FAT BOY and the other Atomic Bomb dropped on Nagasaki,,completely different!! One of these Atomic Bombs was delivered to the USA from Nazi Germany as a gift from Heinrich Himmler. Why?? Again it goes back to OPERATION PAPERCLIP.

Chuck Nelson Las Vegas, 13.03.2021 09:07

Hello, if any of you want to see a full sized color picture of Anna Kreisling, get the latest brochure from CEASAR's PALACE!
She is photographed laying by the pool in an Orange Coral bikini with sea shells on her wrist, her skin is the most honey colored skin I have ever seen! Frost blonde hair, red lips, her breasts ,,,,WOW!! pushing up against the coral bikini top! This is a great picture,,,and she looks so relaxed. When Anna comes to CEASARS PALACE it is a very big deal.

Dr. Godfrey Epstein, London, 09.02.2021 07:37

When one reads Stalin's messages from World War II, you can tell how interested he was in the important people in the Third Reich. For instance Adolf Hitler was always referred to as THE GREY WOLF. Anna Kreisling was referred to as,,THE WHITE WOLF. Martin Bormann was referred to as ,,,The Black WOLF.
Why is this important?? Because it proves that these people existed and the Russian NKVD tried to keep tabs on these people. Remember that Stalin was enraged by OPERATION PAPERCLIP. When 55,000 Nazi's were brought to the United States to help America fight Communism and to go to the Moon.
Werner Von Braun especially requested the OSS to find Anna Kreisling and to bring her to the United States.
Many people in the USA are trying to destroy history, tearing down historical statues, telling everyone that Americans are racist dogs, but the truth is STALIN and the Communists were far worse.
The story of Operation PAPERCLIP is one of a great success! We acquired Rockets and Jet aircraft, and the greatest prize of all, the 55,000 Germans such as Werner Von Braun and Anna Kreisling.

Anna Kreisling KG-200, 15.01.2021 08:08

At this time I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Ashli Babbitt. Ashli served 14 years in the United States Air Force and was a great American Patriot.
She was only 35 years of age and was very brave and courageous.
This is a sad time for our nation, CNN NEWS should stop calling Republicans and American Patriots,,,,Domestic Terrorists,,,they are not. They are brave Americans who are trying to save our nation. May God be with us during these sad times.

Anna Kreisling KG-200, 16.12.2020 04:24

A really great American has passed away, Chuck Yeager who was an Ace in World War II, and broke the sound barrier at Edwards AFB.
Both the Democrats and the Republicans should honor this great pilot instead of throwing cow manure at each other. This is why I fondly remember Germany in the 1930's. Adolf Hitler was a great leader who gave food and shelter to many starving Germans, he gave Germany hope again.
Every night when I listen to the Democrats and Republicans I ask myself,,," Are these people Americans??" They care nothing for the American People. Example when I travel into Los Angeles there are over 100,000 homeless people, many women and children, that are not being fed or cared for!! Hitler would never allow so many German Women and children to go hungry! This is a sign of a Great Leader, a man who cares for the dignity of his people.
This Christmas let us celebrate our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us remember that God Duty and Honor means that we love each other and care for each other.
May God bless all of you this Christmas!
Anna Kreisling KG-200

Anna Kreisling KG-200, 19.11.2020 05:26

I would like to thank CEASAR'S PALACE for making my 100th Birthday so memorable.
I also want to thank all the really wonderful people around the world who have blessed me with their friendship.
Remember if you want information about the Junkers JU-390, please read from the writings of Simon Gunson from New Zealand and Robert Arndt Jr.

Vahe David Demirjian, e-mail, 05.08.2020 05:58

It first flew on October 20, 1943.

Vahe David Demirjian, e-mail, 05.08.2020 03:51

Only the first prototype was built and flown, while the second (intended as the prototype of the Ju 390B ocean reconnaissance aircraft) was not completed. The Ju 390 was actually about as big as TB-4 prototype heavy bomber.

Vahe David Demirjian, e-mail, 05.08.2020 03:45

The claim about a Ju 390 flying within 12 miles of New York to test the Ju 390's capability to hit Manhattan is false; the only Ju 390 version designed for air raids on Manhattan was the Ju 390C.

Vahe David Demirjian, e-mail, 05.08.2020 01:09

The claim about the Ju 390 making a test flight to within 12 miles of New York has been debunked (Griehl 2006).

Griehl, Manfred, 2006. Luftwaffe over America: The Secret Plans to Bomb the United States in World War II. London: Greenhill Books. ISBN 978-0-7607-8697-0.

Vahe David Demirjian, e-mail, 05.08.2020 01:05

The Ju 390 wasn't yet built when the Allies were fighting the Nazis in North Africa. The rear fuselage of the plane in the photograph that you state is from 1942 doesn't seem to be as stretched as that of the first Ju 390 prototype. After all, Kossler and Ott (1993) state that the fuselage of Ju 390 V2 was several feet longer than the first Ju 390 prototype.

Dr. Hans Ziegler, BERLIN, e-mail, 06.05.2016 05:45

Dear Christopher Shores,
Does anyone out there know what happened to Robert Arndt Jr.?? Most of our research backs up what Robert Arndt was saying about the Junkers JU-390.
First we have pictures of a Junkers JU-390 flying supplies to the Afrika Korp in 1942. This picture was taken by British Naval Intelligence.
Next we have the complete diagram of the RECON Junkers JU-390 that flew over New York on August 28th, 1943. It clearly states that it was designed for a four man crew, with eight huge fuel cells in the fuselage, this aircraft could stay airborne for 33 hours.
Again I am hoping that Robert Arndt is alive and doing well.

Jack Hudson, London, 07.01.2014 07:02

We now have photographic proof of a Junkers JU-390 flying supplies to North Africa in 1942. The white bands of the Afrika Korp are clearly seen and the photograph is from 1942. So this concept that the Junkers JU-390 first flew in October of 1943 is not true.

Kenneth Westerly, Detroit, 29.08.2013 19:10

I have just finished building a 1/72nd Junkers JU-290 Tanker Aircraft. A very beautiful and large airplane! Also a Junkers JU-390 Six engined Recon Aircraft which I have flying underneath it ready to take on more fuel for its flight over Canada and Michigan. Incredible and simple operation, yet very daring! There is no doubt among current KC-135 Tanker pilots that this refueling was done over Iceland before the Germans flew into Canada. All of our current B-2 Stealth Bombers would refuel over Greenland before penetrating Soviet Airspace! Also in 1943 there was no radar in Canada and Michigan that was in operation! No one in Washington D.C. thought that such a flight was possible! Just like they thought the Japanese were Never going to attack PEARL HARBOR. I do agree with Professor Barnhardt that this flight over New York caused President Roosevelt to reach an agreement with Hitler, that no Atomic Bombs would be dropped on Berlin or anywhere in Europe!

Prof. Spate Jones USC TROJANS, 30.07.2013 19:18

The Junkers JU-390 by 1945 was an obsolete aircraft. If you look at the 3 Mile Runways that were built in Norway in 1943 and 1944 you would understand that the SANGER ORBITAL NUCLEAR BOMBER was what the Nazi's were preparing for their attacks on America. The V-9 and V-12 Rockets would also carry Nuclear Warheads. However the most deadliest weapon in the NAZI Arsenal was DIE GLOCKE. Why? Think about it. If you are able to go through Time and to see the future, you can control the future. Also DIE GLOCKE allowed you to go from one Dimension to another. and lastly Gravity had no control or influence on this machine. This is why KG-200 had several of these machines installed in their aircraft.

Editor Peter Graves New York, 13.06.2013 17:05

Many historians here in New York have found some great evidence that the Junkers JU-390 Flight over New York can be verified.
1. At Noon on August 28th 1943, AIR RAID Sirens went off in New York and lasted for 45 minutes! The authorities said it was just a test, but now we know it was because a Six-Engined Junkers JU-390 was sighted over the Empire State Building flying at 8,000 feet!
2. Four phone calls reached the NEW YORK TIMES telling them that a German Bomber had been sighted over Michigan by two AT-6 Training Squadrons. Other phone calls came in and said that the Luftwaffe plane was heading to NEW YORK!
3. The German Navy was alerted on August 28th 1943 to be ready to rescue a large Luftwaffe aircraft approaching the coast of France. That this alert lasted eight hours.
4. We have the names of 16 Civilians who had their Kodak Cameras taken away after they reported that they had taken a picture of a New Army Air Corp Bomber with six engines! For six months the FBI and the OSS confiscated all cameras that were rumored to have taken pictures of the Junkers JU-390.
5. President Roosevelt sent an envoy to South Africa to meet with a Top Nazi Official to sign an agreement that the Atomic Bomb would not be used on Berlin or any German city. That Hitler was expected to honor this agreement and not target London, Moscow, or New York with any Atomic Bomb.

Mark, 21.09.2012 14:38

Only 2 have build and is too big as b-29

Col. Scott Thompson U.S.A.F., 29.11.2011 07:59

We now know that a Junkers JU-290 Tanker, refueled the JU-390 north of Iceland on Aug. 27th 1943. Then the Recon JU-390 penetrated Canadian airspace. In 1943 no one dreamed a German plane would fly such a dangerous long range mission, and there was no radar this far north in Canada and even across Michigan. Indeed the most dangerous part of this flight was Noon on Aug.28, when it passed over New York. Then we have another report that a JU-290 Tanker from the Portugese Azores refueled the JU-390 in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean as it headed home. Today in 2011 we do this all the time, but in 1943 the Germans were very carefully planning such a mission.

Ben Beekman, e-mail, 27.02.2011 21:27

In David Mondey's book, "Axis Aircraft of World War II" (Smithmark Publishers, East 32nd St. NY), he states that two six-engined Ju 390 prototypes were built and flown in 1943. The second one took off from Bordeaux, France, on a test flight and flew to within about 12 miles (19 km) of the U.S. coast north of New York before returning. It was proof that the specification for a bomber capable of attacking New York from European bases might well be met, but the scheme did not proceed any further due to more important problems confronting the Reich. The epic flight of the Ju 390 doesn't seem so far-fetched when we recall that other armed German aircraft such as the Fw 200 Condor and the Ju 290 were and had been ranging far out over the Atlantic on maritime reconaissance patrols for years. It was only a matter of time before someone would send a new, longer-ranged, prototype all the way across as a test. Historically, Junkers had been trying to get Deutsche Lufthansa interested in the four-engined version of the Ju 90 since 1937 as 38/40 seat airliners. Both Lufthansa and South African Airways eventually placed orders but the Luftwaffe stepped in and took over when the war began and the aircraft designation was changed to Ju 290 to reflect modifications necessary for use by the military.

My grandfather marcel was captured by the germans in romania and was one of the few captured aerospace engineers the luftwaffe used in the junkers 390 program. this spared him from the death camps as he was sent to work refitting the aircraft bomb bay to acomadate a new german device. All he knew of the device he said he learned by overhearing the project forman mention its name. "die Glocke"

Simon Gunson, e-mail, 25.09.2008 06:10

Long after the war in 1968 Ju-390 project pilot Hans Pancherz who lived after the war in Barcelona, gave an interview about the Ju-390 and produced evidence from diaries and log books to substantiate a test flight he made to Cape Town and back.

In his post war memoirs Reichs armament's Minister Albert Speer wrote of a Ju-390 flight to Tokyo "via the polar route."

U-234 radio operator Wolgang Hirschfeld also referred to the Ju-390 flight to Tokyo in a book which he published in 2007. The U-234 was outbound for Japan in march 1945 when it collided underwater with another u-boat surfacing from beneath her. She put in to Kristiansand. There was a 72 ton discrepancy in her cargo manifest leaving Kiel and her unloading manifest at Portsmouth New Hampshire in 1945. Some of her cargo appears to have been flown to Japan.

A Russian website owned by Sergey Platov mentions a supposed Ju-390 flight to Japan on 28 february 1945 to deliver plans for Japanese construction of the Ju-390A series. Platov's site also claims a Japanese defence attache by the name Maj General Otani was also aboard the flight. I have found no other historic reference to Otani, but several Princes of the Japanese Royal Family masqueraded in the Japanese military under false names and ranks.

Prince Takeda for example was Lt Col. Miyata in Unit 731 and Prince Chichuba appears to have been Captain Wakabayashi.

In 1998 Polish wartime records were declassified and author Igor Witowski found file references at Berlin document centre and in Poland to the Ju-390 evacuating the Bell. device from Silesia to Norway. Witowski also found previously classified details of a Polish diplomat who witnessed the second Ju-390 being broken up on a German owned ranch at Psandayu Province in Uruguay, May 1945.

It appears that Pancherz's testimony after the war that only one Ju-390 ever flew was an effort to conceal the evacuation to Argentina of the Bell device.

There is considerable evidence however that after the Ju-390V1 was abandoned derelict at Dessau in November 1944 (and later destroyed in an air raid) that another Ju-390 was kept flying.

I Study And The 390 is My Favroite Of All Planes In World war 2.

Gregory Ryder, e-mail, 07.07.2008 03:53

Ju390 is the aircraft used in 1945 to spirit away the super high tech secret project known as "The Bell" from its bunker. Apparently the Ju 390 and "The Bell" disappeared. This according to the book "The SS Brotherhood of The Bell" by Farell,available from "Military Issue" item #M103260. I think that this is more intriguing than the alleged recon of USA. inasmuchas there was also another bomber intended for the mission against USA., the Messerschmitt Me264 "Amerikabomber" with 4 engines. A model of this in 1/72 scale is available from "Historic Aviation" as item #96030D.

I am very intrigued about the transatlantic Luftwaffe flight that was over American soil. I have yet to see proof that this really occurred, however. Does anyone have a link or a reference, to shed a little more light on the subject?

Simon Gunson, e-mail, 20.02.2008 06:38

Bradley, Albert Speer in his book "Inside the Third Reich" wrote about a flight to Tokyo "via the polar route." Later Dr. Wilhem Voss (Kammlerstab Prague) told British journalist Tom Agoston that the Ju-390 flew to Tokyo 28 March 1945. James is in fact referring to three Ju-290s flown in Deutsch Luft hansa markings, but registered:
KR+LP as T9+WK (lost over Russia)
KR+LM as T9+UK
KR+LN as T9+VK (lost over Russia)

You guys may be interested to read some of my research about how the second Ju-390 ended up being dismantled on an airstrip in Uraguay: http://www.lwag.org/forums/showthread.php?t=3372

Also I can't seem to use the email links here but am equally interested in the Norway-Michigan-France flight.

What was the original source for this please ?

The story of the transatlantic recon flight over Michigan and near New York City is very interesting, particularly because, as of the 1943 operational date, the United States and Germany had already been at war for over a year. It's hard to imagine that such a large and unique aircraft - nothing like it was in the United States' inventory - flying for hours at a ceiling of only 20,000 feet over heavily-populated areas, would not have been spotted by someone.

Six more Ju-390's were built in secret. They flew from Odessa to Japanese bases in China. Anna Kreisling a neighbor of mine was a co-pilot on the longest Recon flight of World War II. She took off from Bergen, Norway and overflew Michigan and New York City before landing at a Luftwaffe base in France.
