1 Operation Highjump on Mon Feb 17, 2014 5:53 am


Article about Operation Highjump:
tl;dr version: Operation Highjump was an expedition by the USA to find Nazi bases around Antarctica, consisting of a large amount of naval ships and men, and more than enough supplies to set up a Little America on Antarctica. Admiral Byrd, the leader of the expidition, went out with some other planes off of an aircraft carrier with magnometers(to search for hollow points in the land), spy cameras, and other equipment, returned 3 hours late from his expedition, supposedly losing an engine and having to throw most of his equipment overboard, except for film and magnometer readings.

The article continues to talk about cases of Nazi U-boats transporting supplies from the fatherland to antarctica base as to not make all the research worthless, and it mentions a case of one icelandic whaling vessel that was apprehended by a U-boat in 1947(if i'm not mistaken), and it talks about how the captain of the vessel was asked to sell supplies to them in exchange for information on a large grouping of whales nearby(which turned out to be there).

Also mentioned is "flying objects which could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds". I'll leave the rest of the information for you all to judge though as the article is quite long.

What do you guys think?

Hmm... I doubt there is a base there though. It is possible but highly unlikely.
