Junkers W34 crash

Hello all,

on 13 Jan 1936 a Junkers W34 of the „Fliegergruppe Giebelstadt“ code D-O… crashed in the fog on the Staffelberg, a mountain near Staffelstein.
The pilot and three passengers were killed:
Hptm Wolf Freiherr von Gültlingen
Lt Karl Hermann Kurt von Plüskow
Lt Rudolf Harnier
Uffz Peter Zapf.
The fourth passenger survived the crash. Does anyone know the identity of this person?

Regards
Leo

Re: Junkers W34 crash

The identity of this elusive fourth passenger appears to be a big mystery in German aviation history, a quick glance on the www reveals.


A nice eyewitness story here: http://www.newslocker.com/de-de/regi...von-1936/view/
