Trying to check a departure date from Berlim Tempelhof in 1939

Hello to all.

I´m finishing my manuscript but found a strange data for the Focke Wulf Fw 200 D-AXFO Pommern.
All data I have here in Brasil says it left Berlim Tempelhof on 28 june 1939 arriving in Rio de Janeiro 29 june 1939.
It´s a puzzle since departure time is listed as being 20:30 and arriving time 15:42. That´s impossible since the flight plus scales took around 40 hours.
The arriving date is correct, 29 june so my best guess the departure day was 27 not 28.
Is there any place where I could check the departure day and time from Tempelhof?
Thanks in advance,

Hello Sergio Luis,

Here are the exact dates and times (CET) for the D-AXFO ferry flight:

Berlin-Tempelhof dep 27.06.1939 22:30
Seville arr 28.06.1939 06:27, dep 08:20
Bathurst arr 28.06.1939 18:09, dep 20:34
Natal arr 29.06.1939 06:21, dep 08:20
Rio de Janeiro-Santos Dumont arr 29.06.1939 15:24

This comes to an elapsed time of 40:54 hrs over a distance of 11.105 km, at an average speed of 271,5 km/h (incl. the stops at Seville, Bathurst and Natal).

Contact me directly for any other details.

Best regards,

Günther Ott
