The San Diego Air and Space Museum Unveils Replica of Hitler's Stealth Fighter

Soar into the San Diego Air and Space Museum for the unveiling of National Geographic Channel and Northrop Grumman Corp.'s Horten 229 flying wing replica for Hitler’s Stealth Fighter, on Wednesday, June 24 th as part of the Museum’s World War II Gallery. Northrop Grumman aeronautical engineers worked from the original plans and prototype to reconstruct a full-scale replica of the jet and determined if it had stealth capabilities. If proven, it would confirm that Hitler was on the verge of introducing a stealth jet fighter into the battle with Allies, long before the United States began developing stealth technology in the 1970s.

Stay tuned for a new documentary on the subject which premiers June 28 at 9 p.m. on the National Geographic Channel.

For information on the unveiling, call (619) 234-8291, Ext. 140.
