Most of the aircraft under development were constructed of non strategic materials, such as wood and composites. As the end approaches in 1945 the projects take on an ever increasing tone of desperation, which is reflected in the extremely non conventional nature of the aircraft designs. The engineers and scientists working on these research projects were to use a modern phrase thinking outside of the box. The flight testing aspect of these radical designs were extremely dangerous to the flight crews, who incidentally were in a large part women.

All of the experienced pilots were engaged in operational duties and could not be spared for test pilot duties. Many of the projects were destroyed in bombing raids by the quickly advancing Allied forces and their existence would have been obliterated from history had it not been for the teams of engineers and scientists who were tasked to gather information by interviewing the personnel who worked on these projects.

The volunteers at Luft 46 are dedicated to the preservation of this aeronautical history many of the illustrations are credited to its members.
