The Department of National Defence received a letter from a German man. The man claimed to be an aeronautical engineer who in 1944, with other scientists, built a saucer-like flying vessel meant to be "Hitler's secret weapon." The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) investigated and interviewed the man. Incidents such as these are examples of cases that were kept by the department for further investigation.
