The RAND Corporation traces its origins to a research and development project created inside the Douglas Aircraft Company to study UFOs secretly retrieved by the U.S. military after the February 1942 Los Angeles Air Raid incident, according to former Douglas Aircraft employee, William Tompkins. Tompkins further reveals that in 1943 he began delivering briefing documents from a covert Navy espionage program, which had learned about antigravity craft created by Nazi Germany, to the Douglas research and development project that later evolved into the RAND Corporation.
The Nazi antigravity craft were similar in design to retrieved UFOs suggesting an alliance had been reached between the Nazis and one or more extraterrestrial civilizations. Further compounding the problem, according to Tompkins, was that the Navy spies had learned that the Nazis had relocated significant resources to remote locations in Antarctica during World War II, with the assistance of an extraterrestrial civilization called the Draconians.
The secret history of RAND was first revealed by Tompkins in his book, Selected By Extraterrestrials and in subsequent interviews where he discussed his 12 years working at Douglas Aircraft from late 1950 to May 1963. In a September 19 telephone interview, Tompkins gave more details about RAND and its earlier involvement with Douglas Aircraft in studying UFO reports and the Nazis antigravity projects.
Tompkins revealed that in early 1942, after the Los Angeles UFO incident, the President of Douglas Aircraft Company, Donald Douglas, Snr, along with his chief engineer, Arthur Raymond, and his assistant, Franklin Bolbohm, convened an informal working group that included two Navy admirals and two Army Air Force Generals to investigate the research implications of two retrieved UFO craft.
A leaked Majestic Document dating from February 1942, supports Tompkins claim that two UFOs had been retrieved after the Los Angeles incident, by the Navy and the Army respectively:
Regarding the air raid over Los Angeles it was learned by Army G2 that Rear Admiral Anderson has informed the War Department of a naval recovery of an unidentified airplane off the coast of California with no bearing on conventional explanation. Further it has been revealed that the Army Air Corps has also recovered a similar craft in the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles which cannot be identified as conventional aircraft. This Headquarters has come to the determination that the mystery airplanes are in fact not earthly and according to secret intelligence sources they are in all probability of interplanetary origin.
The Douglas Aircraft Corporation was headquartered in Santa Monica, so it is natural to assume that senior Douglas personnel would have witnessed the Los Angeles event, which Tompkins himself witnessed as an 18 year old at the time, and described in detail in Selected by Extraterrestrials.
Subsequently, it is very plausible that Donald Douglas, Snr, would have contacted senior officers in both the US Navy and Army to form an informal working group to discuss the UFO incident and its implications for the aeronautical industry in early 1942. After all, Douglas Aircraft Company was ramping up aircraft production for both the US Navy and Army Air Force, and it behooved everyone to learn as much as possible about the UFOs involved in the Los Angeles incident.
