30.04.1945 Schörner als Oberbefehlshaber des Heeres in Hitlers Testament vorgesehen. Eine der 3 Abschriften davon sollte auf Befehl Schörners in Berlin abgeholt werden. OLt Graßmann sollte dazu gegen Mitternacht 01. / 02.05.1945 auf der Pfaueninsel mit Fieseler Storch Major Johannmeyer von der Heeres-Adjutantur des Führers aufnehmen, und ins HQu des Feldmarschalls, der von seiner Ernennung nichts wusste, geflogen werden. Der “Storch“ konnte jedoch in Berlin nicht mehr landen, kehrte um und musste im Erzgebirge notlanden.

Cheers Krollspell, just what I was looking for - Thanks to you also, Dieter - never heard about this Storch!? Only ever heard of a waterplane that came to fetch the kuriers. But as Johannmeyer was ment to go to Schörner it sounds plausible. Do you know anything more about this flight or of OLt Graßmann? Whats your source?
