Hi David,

There are a number of German pilot reports out there which are
very dubious as there sources are unreliable.  Also, H. Durant
made up the Sonder Buro hoax as a way to catch people poaching
from his book.  It was not ufology's finest hour.  (Just one more
stupid incident in the legion that makes me believe that
ufologists are the main problem in studying UFOs.)

I do have a report from a German submarine captain during the
war. There are some retrospective reports from various German,
Japanese, and Axis subjects, but no reliable one's from pilots
unless Werner or others can correct me.

David Griggs told Dr. McDonald that he asked the Japanese to look
at their records and got a negative answer from them.  However,
Jo Chamberlin who wrote the "Foo-Fighter" article in American
Legion magazine claims that we found 'Foo-Fighter" accounts in
both German and Japanese documents.  He refused to talk to
Lindell about this as he said his information came from
classified documents and he had been visited by counter
intelligence after the article appeared.  I guess they put the
fear of God into him.  When I attempted to contact him, he had
had a stroke.  His wife thought that 50 year records still being
classified was a joke and promised to look for me.  However, she
probably has her hands full so I am not expecting an answer.

Best regards,
