I share with you a lot of pictures, some of them previously unreleased, rare and never before seen by me, referring to one of the secret weapons of the Luftwaffe. We are talking about the Horten flying wing. Perhaps, the aircraft of the Second World War the most ahead of its time than any other, went into production too late to be put into service. Do you think if he had gone into production would have changed the course of the war and history? Visit the link below and give us your opinion about it.

If they would have started the program earlier (let's say 1934 or so) it might have been able to make a difference. The design/testing was too late in the war and hasn't really showed that it was an effective bomber (too many problems with the airplane also).
