I figured such an oddball looking machine being made by the Nazis
would handle supremely. It sounds like Richard Voigt was taken under
"Operation Paperclip" but if everyone knew that Hitler was indeed
alive and Allen Dulles gave him the USA by a deal brokered by
"martians" from Hitlers journey in a Haunebu 2 to Mars ('44 ?),
Paperclip was just a stratagem to hide the fact that Hitler was still
alive and running things. But don't be annoyed by my spouting of this
stuff, staying on topic it's obvious (and I didn't know until you guys
informed me about this plane) that if it's a recon plane, they had to
build that extra large canopy (another fuselage?) to perform functions
they could not perform by having it on the regular fuselage. Do you by
chance know what special functions were being performed by creating
this extra fuselage - it would seem from first glance they would be
able to look through the bottom of it if it's all glass down there.
Please inform us if you know, I mean you don't just add a second
fuselage and make an incredible bizarre looking craft to simply grab
attention. I'm amazed at the craft, as well as the many others they
