UFO in World War 2

 

A lot of mysterious UFO sightings were reporting during the Second World War, and because of the frequency with which fighter pilots reported them, a name was attributed to the – foo fighters. Yes, the name of the famous rock & roll band is attributed to these strange sightings of the European and especially Pacific Operations Theater.

The first time when UFOs were reported during World War 2 was 1944, and the US 415 Night Fighter Squadron was the one to do it. Of course, the sightings were considered to be nothing more than some secret projects, either weapons or recon equipment. However, since no information was officially disclosed, neither after the war was over, and because both parties in the war were at a loss as to what their provenance was, a lot of different theories emerged.

To add weight to the allegations that these were not flying objects that belonged to neither parties, reputed scientifically voices of the period confirmed the sightings – amongst them, David Griggs, Luis Alvarez as well as H. P. Thomson.

After the war was over, the theory that these were in fact ultra secret Nazi flying vehicles meant to spy on the allies, or to engage in combat. Some voices also ran with the hypothesis that they were just balloons used to intimidate the allies.

However, to this day the mystery of the sightings, the exactness of the descriptions, sometimes coming from sources that were not able to communicate with each other remains mind boggling and still incites a lot of people to dig into the matter.
