The Mystery of Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s Giant Antarctic Snow Cruiser
That is exactly what happened in 1939. This giant snow cruiser carried five men and a Navy BI-plane and sufficient equipment for an exploring trip to last a year and it is missing.
The official story tells us that the Antarctic snow cruiser was intended to facilitate transport in Antarctica while the crew consisting of scientists conducted seismologic experiments, cosmic-ray measurements, and ice core sampling while living in the snow- and timber-covered Snow Cruiser.
But it is more likely that the snow cruiser has been used for a secret operation led by Admiral Richard E. Byrd.
As the Americans knew that the Germans were conducting a secret expedition in Antarctica, Admiral Richard E. Byrd received confidential orders from the White House for putting together an American expedition to Antarctica and these orders were a State Department secret, even the existence of the orders had been kept secret.
The possible reason for the expedition… the Americans wanted to be the first to gain entrance and to explore the legendary lands inside the earth beyond the pole.
There was only a final newspaper article issued on May 15, 1940 of The New York times detailing Admiral Byrd’s report on the findings of the 1939 Antarctic Expedition.
The Admiral reported that the expedition “achieved much more than he thought possible including the discovery of 900 miles of unknown coastline that explorers had been seeking for a hundred years but also in this article he never mentioned the snow cruiser, even stranger what was that apparently he was never asked. The giant machine that had been on everyone’s minds and lips before Byrd left was might never had existed.
