Horten. Was this what Kenneth Arnold witnessed in 1947?
I got chills… That's a beauty!
Where is this at and when was it built?
Jets arrived too late for Germany to win the war. Great planes though! 👍
Ahhh….the beginning of the B-2/Flying wing concept. Thank you Germany
I wonder what would happen if germany win the war..goosebump
I love this plane! Bit bizarre, but it's still one of my favorites, right up there with the B-2 (which it may or may not have inspired) and the SR-71. It's the Horten Ho 229, built just before the end of WW2 and only as a prototype. Only three were ever built and at least one was rebuilt in the US; when it was tested by the military they found its shape, paint and laminating adhesive to offer some reduction in detection from British radar, about 37%, but that was about all – it wasn't as effective against any other conventional radar.Information courtesy Wikipedia.
Awsomeis thing ever
It was built as part of a documentary. About the protype that was found in complete and in pieces after the war.
+Hamdan Md Ali Germany was destined to lose the war. Their atom bomb project didn't go anywhere because they didn't trust their best scientists who happened to be Jews.
Actually they didn't really even need the atom bomb project; the atom bombs would have been useless with the Messerschmidt in the air. They would've been shot down too fast.But yes, the Nazi regime was destined to fail – it would have suffered a rebellion at some point. Besides, no one can control the entire world like Hitler was trying to do – the ancient Romans found that out the hard way, and they only controlled the Mediterranean.
+Kezanza the Great This was absolutely the "inspiration" for the B-2. Captured/Taken/Found (however you wanna look at it) after the war and brought to the USA.
German engineering was on another level back then. Still is today. They just don't waste a bunch of money on their military like most countries do now. Their medical system is probably the best in the world. They're so innovative in medical/medicine now it's insane.
+Matthew Sharp German beer is also very good! 🍺 👍
+Danny Quizon Everything German is good. They just know how to live over there. Lol
+Kezanza the Great Your absolutely right with the Horton 229… The photo we seen on this post of the Horton 229… It was a copy of the Horton 229, that was built by Northrop Grumman… To check if the design was really stealthy against World War 2 radar systems at the time. And to tell the truth… It was stealthy in certain flight patterns against the radar. So technically it was the first stealth fighter. Built by the Germans during the final stages of World War 2.
+Ruben Ironworker377SF San Francisco Yup
German Flying Wing
Video of this plane being built here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqgfjXaJxV8
This iss for war???
+aqamal amar Huh? This is from WW2
Really.hope we still in peace
I swear that's in Captain America??
Usa stole nazi projects
+Avineesh Suppiah The aircraft that appeared in the first Captain America movie was a much larger version of the plane shown here. The larger version was one of at least two aircraft Hitler called the Amerikabomber. The other one looked more like a rocket than an airplane. Both were intended to deliver a nuclear payload to the continental United States.
The Horten 229 shown above wasn't capable of reaching the U.S. from Europe and was more of a proof-of-concept platform.
It-s a copy of German WWII Horten IX (Gotha 229), designed by Horten brothers in 1944-45. Original example is now stored at NASM warehouses, divided into parts. Original with its BMW jet engines flew very fast in the end of WWII.
I believe this plane or a similar German design were built by Boeing employees on their own time.
+David Dennis-Leigh They were from northrop grumman
+Robert Benter I thought they just pieced it back together and painted it?? No??
+Matthew Sharp Nope. The original is in a warehouse outside of DC. This was a recreation. Video above.
+Robert Benter Oh, cool. I didn't even see you put that link up. Thank you my friend
Not using those over Syria then. Is it real or a mock up or wishful thinking.
+Danny Quizon The Horton 229. Was not capable of reaching the United States. But the Horton brothers had a design to built a 6 jet power engine, transatlantic bomber. It was going to be called the Horton 129. This bomber was going to be powered by 6 jet turbo fan motors. It will have the same shape as the Horton 229, but much bigger. Hermann Goering order 100 of these transatlantic bombers to be built. But World War 2 ended before production could start. But one thing I did find out. Its maximum range was over 3800 miles. And top speed will be around 480 miles an hour. Its payload will be around 20,000 pounds.
I like this pic
It was supposed to be. It actually never made it into the war; it was onlybuilt as a prototype.
+Kezanza the Great Yes… But if The Hortons could have build the 129 transatlantic bomber. It could have changed to war a great deal with United States. Even though the Germans did not develop the atomic bomb. It's been told they could have made a dirty-bomb(nuclear).
+Kezanza the Great They only built two prototypes of the Horton 229 fighter plane. 1 prototype crashed and its pilot was killed. And the other prototype was never finished and left behind in the hanger. It was not found until the US special engineers known as Project Paperclip found the aircraft.
+Rigoberto Garcia I dont know you STRANGER DANGER
can it still fly? i would not think so it is at least 73 years old.
As you can see is a very small airplane
+Rigoberto Garcia are you a retard? That's a pic of Taylor Swift… dude, seriously…
+aqamal amar no, they designed it for snuggling…
WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR LETS GO GETEM!!!!!
+Brady Brooks Photo you see is a rebuilt design of the Horton 229. It does not have any jet engines. It doesn't even have any landing gear. Northrop Grumman made this model to see if it was invisible and stealthy against World War 2 radar system. The original Horton 229 it's in the Smithsonian Institution in storage. It's disassembled in pieces. Northrop Grumman had permission from the Smithsonian to go in and take measurements of the plane that was disassembled so they can make a model copy of it. But once Northrop Grumman finish copying and then assembling the plane. It was then taken to Northrop Grumman radar system and setup for radar detection. And it was proven that it was stealthy when flying in certain flight positions. Towards the radar the British had in World War 2.
How did you get a pic with a bomber jet dam son
Did you make this yourself
Me or him
I would drive it because it looks fun
+Hamdan Md Ali read 'The Man in The High Castle' scary
I want to drive this also
It was a real plane not finished before the war ended
Oh hell yeah!! Those dang Germans were on to something back then..
that is big
too bad its fake!
Make me one if you can please👩😘
What is it going to be use for.
I believe i can fly! I reckon..
Lol how do they do it
I don't know
+пират пиратов Well Russia was also very interested into German tech and scientist
A list of aircraft that have found their way to Russia ……..and where evaluated and tested.Fw -190He-162He-100Me-109Me-110Me 163Me262AR2348And before the war the even get from Germany aircraft to evaluate them Because of The Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact.Here a nice book about that …….http://www.largescaleplanes.com/reference/details.php?title=1586
+Olav de With well. We are discussing this picture. Molotov-ribbenrtop pact was latest agreement in Europe with nazi. Before pact molotov-ribbentrop was Munich Agreement 1938 year. Anglo-saxons started as nazi allies and after was molotov-ribbentrop agreement. Nazi work for usa moon program.
+пират пиратов But has it not always have been the case that contra and espionage is "normal"….You comment made the suggestion that only the USA has stolen or borrowed it from Germany.I think Russia itself was also very interested in acquiring it ……….:-))http://www.russianspaceweb.com/a4_team_moscow.htmlGreetings from the Anglo Saxon part of the world :-))
+Olav de With in your reference I read "without us help soviet collapse 1,5 year…" . Omg this is bullsh@t because Anglo-saxons opened second front vs nazi after soviet win in Stalingrad and near Kursk. Near Kursk was destroyed main and best part of nazi tanks. All from western media lie. Soviet used little part from nazi technology. Nazi afraided of soviet and all ran to Anglo-saxons.
+пират пиратовIt was you that stated USA had stolen Nazi tech ……….I came up with a wider perspectieve one that , call it a little open debate welcome to the free open minded world son But you are got stuck into fear and anger towards the west …..pityBecause my Russian friend's aren't that way .
+Olav de With maybe you are rigth. I don't like gays, usa, nazi, people wich eat human hearts (and wich usa helps in Syria). And I take into account that usa had bad past: mass killed American Indians, negros slaves, used atom bombs vs civilian, lie about weapons for mass killing fron Iraq and other. Can normal man trust usa?
+пират пиратов each nation has it own dark pages ……..About trust have a look into east /european history …..relation between nations kingdoms and empires,It's a boiling soup each time somebody else took the spoon ……So we could stated that it 's a complex thing , each nation has given it's own interpretation to that .
+Olav de With but not all from nations try teach other nations. Usa try teach every countries how they must live, try teach "what is democracy?". Obama told " American exceptionalism".
