Biographical / Historical:
Alfred Victor Verville (1890-1970), aviation pioneer and aircraft designer, was responsible for a number of important inventions in aircraft design, including welded-steel-frame fuselages and retractable landing gear. He began work with the Curtiss Aeroplane Co in 1914 and, by the end of World War I had moved through a number of manufacturers, including Curtiss (1914), T-M Airplane Co (1915), General Airplane Co (1915-17), and Fisher Body Corp, Airplane Division (1917-18). In 1918 he became involved in military aviation at the United States Army Air Corp Engineering Division, McCook Field , OH (1918-25) and served as advisor to Colonel William Mitchell during his inspection trip to Europe (1922). In 1925 he co-founded the Buhl-Verville Aircraft Co (1925-27) before striking out on his own with the Verville Aircraft Co (1928-31). Through the 1930s and 1940s he acted in a number of capacities, including periods as a consultant (1932, 1939-41); at the Bureau of Air Commerce, United States Department of Commerce (1933-36); Douglas Aircraft (1937-38); Curtiss Wright Corp (1941-42), Snead Aircraft, Technical Division (1942); and Drexel Aviation Co (1942-45). In 1945 he served as a member of the Naval Technical Mission to Europe and later joined the Navy's Bureau of Aeronautics (1946-61). He retired in 1961, but continued to support aviation and aeronautics until his death.

[10:56] Walter as originator, through Diesing, of Göring's 1000x1000x1000 edict to German aircraft industry. [12:51] Character of Gen. Diesing. [15:00] Reimar: Walter cultivated many contacts throughout Luftwaffe. [18:00] What Milch thought about Horten IX and all-wing …Milch made Heinkel 177 into a dive bomber …[22:00] Milch approved Horten IX …Milch wanted to give Me 262 to Horten GMbH to produce, swept wing expertise, according to Myhra. [27:15] Engine placement on Horten IX …[28:35] Reimar on Heinkel and von Ohain and turbojet engine …[33:00] Discussions between Walter and Udet about new all-wing fighter for Germany. Multhopp on Horten IX [35:30]. 1943 Lilienthal Gesellschaft conference, Tank, Multhopp, Lippisch, for and against the flying wing, also present at this meeting professors from Darmstadt, Braunschweig, Adlershof; Reimar never mentioned bell lift distribution, "all against" flying wing except Lippisch, Reimar decided not to mention bell distribution, all professors but no pilots …[38:20] "…great tapering, small wingtips and great root …" element of bell distribution …Lippisch agree with us [on benefits of flying wing] and [he was] attacking them…" [40:00] Clout of Antz at RLM. Reimar then describes possible speed range of jet aircraft, 747, Horten IX, with original small center section 960 kph, with larger center section 920 kph, Reimar estimated these speeds and he did not want to claim 1,000 kph, as Walter urged. Ziller thought Horten IX capable of 900 kph [45:00]. Reimar on dynamic pressure vis-a-vie wing skin thickness, etc. [48:18] Horten IX wingtips required reinforcement of wood with metal strips, Dr. Pinton at Dynamit AG had a glue that would bond aluminum and wood, Reimar tested concept and practiced bonding procedure on Horten IV b, but Wilkenson dismissed IV b work as wasteful diversion [50:30] …also had to reinforce Horten IX V3 but hide metal strips from radar. [53:29] Reimar on glue developed by Dr. Pinton at Dynamit AG to bond plastics, also good for fuel-proof coating inside Horten IX wet-wing, etc… Reimar's ideas for increasing torsional stiffness in wingtip, aiming to withstand 5,000 kg/m² dynamic pressure.

Reimar is comparing Horten method of wing design with Goethert (sp?) design, twist (aero and geometric), swept taper Center of Gravity, to show why Goethert's (sp?) conclusions about the swept wing were faulty - Goethert's (sp?) report from DVL issued about mid-1944, Horten reaction to Goethert (sp?) report [51:06]; Gotha's selection by RLM to build H IX [52:52], process started mid-1944, Klemm to build also [57:54] Gotha hired Goethert (sp?).
