The answer promises to revealed when you watch “Hitler’s Stealth Fighter” this Sunday, June 28, at 9 p.m on the National Geographic Channel.
The show follows a team from Northrop Grumman Corp who build a Horten 229 flying wing replica to determine if it had stealth capabilities three decades before the United States.
The German-built prototype of the Horton Ho 229 has been hidden away in a U.S. government warehouse since WWII.
The newly-built replica was placed on a 50-foot pedestal at a formerly secret location in the Mojave Desert so that it could be hit with radar returns from every angle.
Was it the first stealth fighter/bomber? You’ll just have to watch to find out.
