If I understand your premis, Theo, you are suggesting that WWII
fighter and bomber pilots confused 1939 UFOs with late 1944 to
early 45 missiles. The reports weren't restricted afterall to
the closing days of the war.The V-1 and V-2 were not deployed in
great numbers until the dying days of WWII. BTW - what balsawood
structure were you referring to?
