The mystery behind the 1942 RAF recon flight that spotted a giant


Giant - The mystery behind the 1942 RAF recon flight that spotted a giant

In December of 1942, the crew of the RAF recon flight 300 is said to have taken a picture of a being of unimaginable proportions, some even called out the image as being one of the best pieces of evidence that giants exist, or existed in the past. However, the truth behind the image is very different from the story many were told.

If we look back in history, we will find that countless ancient cultures around the globe believed in the existence of Giants.

If we search around a little bit, we will find countless reports, books, and links that point to the possibility that these ‘mythological’ beings were real.

Even the Bible suggests these beings may have been real.

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” -Genesis 6:4

“And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” -Numbers 13:33.

One of the best pieces of evidence backing up the alleged existence of giants was made in 1988, when one of Europe’s leading newspaper, BILD.de published images of a 38 centimeter long finger. The discovery raised numerous questions and was quickly reported as being fake, even though evidence pointed in another direction.

More evidence was supposedly uncovered in Africa.

A fascinating, MASSIVE footprint was discovered over a hundred years ago when a hunter called Stoffel Coetzee stumbled across it in 1912 while hunting in the area. The granite block where the footprint is located can be described as ‘phenocrystic’ granite or coarse porphyritic granite which underwent numerous stages of cooling to end up as it is today.

Since the discovery, geologists have been left stunned by the gigantic footprint left in ‘rough granite’ of 4 feet in length. It couldn’t have belonged to a giant, right?

But there is ample evidence around the globe which offers a lot of material to engage in a debate whether or not there is a possibility that giants once roamed the earth.

The Great Norwegian Mountain Troll

One of the most interesting pictures I have come across is that of the alleged Great Norwegian Mountain Troll.

The being depicted in the image is SUPERMASSIVE.

But is it real?

The short answer is no.


Well take a minute and see the entire story through. Don’t you think that if an RAF recon flight would have actually identified such a being dancing around beneath them, they would not have taken more than just one image?

The image which has many people confused and believing giants are real is a screen grab from the movie Troll Hunter. It is perhaps one of the best pieces of evidence how that shows how easy it is to manipulate images creating elaborate hoaxes.


In fact, Reddit user junglist313 explains the confusion created by the image:

“Sorry to break it to everyone but this is 100% Fake. I suspect it is the work of Lucy Reynolds but I can’t confirm at this time. What I can confirm is this: I took this image from the movie Troll Hunter and it matches up perfectly with this photo. Here is an animation I made to further illustrate this. I’m kind of sad because I really wanted to learn more about this story, I want to believe!”

The original image from the movie:

In fact, the image which could easily be mistaken for authentic is in fact from the movie Troll Hunter and as junglist313 explains it, the image of the movie and that of the alleged TROLL photographed by a FAR recon flight match up perfectly.

While I do believe that there are more mysteries on Earth than we ever thought possible, this image here is not one of them and only proves that in today’s era, creating a hoax is a piece-of-cake.
