ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Der Shtealthischer, a bomber plane that enigmatic industrialist Baron Hermann von Kriminell was said to have invented for the Führer Adolf Hitler. It recalls that von Kriminell was able to persuade Hitler to buy such planes from him in 1935 in which the latter ordered 500 units and paid millions in gold. It adds that when it was time for Hitler to make use of the planes for an invasion of Great Britain in 1941, both von Kriminell and the planes which the latter claimed was hidden in the Black Forest, Germany were missing.
