  • August 26th 1946.

  • Ah US Scientific expedition called Operation High Jump departs for the South Pole.

  • It is led by esteemed naval officer and explorer Admiral Richard Byrd.

  • Admiral Richard Byrd was a very important admiral in the United States Navy.

  • He graduated the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis.

  • He fought in World War I on.

  • After the war, he became an explorer in 1926.

  • Bird made worldwide headlines when he and Navy chief aviation pilot Floyd Bennett became the first people to ever fly over the North Pole for their efforts.

  • Both men received the Congressional Medal of Honor.

  • Later Win Bird, at the age of 41 made the first solo flight over the South Wall.

  • He became the youngest person ever promoted to the rank of admiral in the history of the United States Navy.

  • In 1946 Bird oversaw Operation High Jump, the largest and Arctic expedition to date.

  • The massive military convoy included 13 ships, 33 aircraft and 4700 troops.

  • U.

  • S Navy sent down a flotilla of ships under command of Admiral Byrd, and they came back after about nine months in Antarctica, apparently they actually fought a battle in Antarctica, probably between remnants of the Third Reich and perhaps extraterrestrials as well.

  • There were stories of craft coming up out of the water and attacking them.

  • Flying sources.

  • Delta.

  • A Very heavy defeat.

  • Two birds Operation High Jump.

  • He gave a report in March off 1947 that said a new enemy had been discovered that could fry from pole to pole in an instant.

  • In 2018 more than 70 years after birds astounding claim, a satellite image captured what appeared to be a condensed water trail from an aircraft or contrail that could only have been produced by something traveling at incredibly high speeds.

  • It extended Theo entire length of the Earth longitude early from the North Pole to the South Pole, which is 12,000 miles.

  • The maximum length of time that a contrail can maintain its shape is 30 minutes, but most dissipate in less than 15.

  • Only a craft capable of traveling faster than 50,000 miles per hour or 10 times the speed of the fastest aircraft in existence today could leave a contrail that would stretch the entire length of the earth without breaking up.

  • It's a seeming impossibility because it meant that some object was able to traverse the entire planet from pole to pole in a matter of minutes before the contrail disappeared.

  • Whatever created that was going beyond Mach 10 Mach 10 is over 70,000 miles per hour.

  • This was probably going much, much faster than that.

  • So whatever it WAAS was something that more than likely we've never seen before.

August 26th 1946.
