Why it is relevant is that it shows Ju-290 aircraft in Lufthansa markings were flying millitary missions to Spain. The site's address is:

RH: Notes for GG! to U-869./U-327./U-1279,/and Karl=SFM 43
Hello Mr. Karl! Thanks, surprisingly, thought that it [was] Mr. G. is, which lives in Brazil. The 11/44 the USA agent OI, but briefly after landing the U 1230, in the USA calm and there soon surrender survives there and to Brazil changed later. Wrote there four years earlier friend, a map there in 1910 geb., thus at that time [it was] already 90 years.
If it is an older Mr. H. and something had to do with SFM 43
Code: Select all
, then surprisingly, since also this would be now far in the 90. Lenbensjahr. The courier flew as admits H. Anfang April 1945 from Berlin to Munich. Stairs there into Lufthansa CONDOR Ju 290 and with further Passengers in the night flight on 5./6. April 1945 to Barcelona. Flight-put alps, Rhonetal, Mediterranean, Barcelona. With landing in Barcelona, the tail landing gear broke off at the Ju 290. The machine remained lying. It became with another airplane still another spare wheel with mounting [was] flown to Barcelona, however the Ju 290 repair of the damage could not any longer not fly back, there. The Spaniards from allied pressure closed Barcelona airport starting from 12 April 1945 for Takeoffs and landings of German Linienmaschienen etc. Officially to close had. Perhaps allied also found out which passengers have etc. in this last official flight sat. Anyhow the Ju 290 on the airfield Barcelona remained and stood 1946 and became probably of the splinter also still there. Air Force taken over. The Mr. H. traveled to Madrid, delivered there its courier thing (film doses with UfA features, like fortress Kolberg film in Fabe), perhaps with Pads volumes, none there technically which would have noticed, because volumes are volumes and he emigrated sometime after SA. Is to have moved however only later after S.P. By the way that outstandingly perfectly made last quantity color film "Kolberg" became still February 1945 by means of Ju 252 the west fortresses at the Atlantic flown and there the soldiers demonstrated. Should that Holding out will strengthen! By the way also submarine drivers saw there the colour strip in the Casinos. Probably and rather reliably Mr. H. knew only the filmrollen etc., with it also still another kilometer the Pads of volumes was, might it not have known. All Pads was generally provided in Berlin! Probably therefore boron man came on the idea starting from February 1945 navy the SFM 43 system Krokdil of Doenitz deliver themselves and/or to let give for joint use. H.S. communicated times, all this Staff officers against it were completely particularly and Hesseler and Godt on the other hand intervened. The Gross Admiral stood however probably somehow in the word, because it gave the naval [it's] own code-system, that [was] not compatible with Air Force! and army! off. The volumes came....in the sense from UfA laboratory range, which one as perfect camouflage to understand can. In the long run the Pads was only even such as tapes, that punched of three strips were, for a FRR refined at that time Equipment. Today with most modern Labs, according to the same basic principle, but with Andereren storage media assigned in diplomat communication. Perhaps you can Mr. Karl, give small hint whether Mr. H. perhaps the described action traveler in things of kulturfilme was. MfG. baires(telmo/barrio) [/quote] MfG refers to the rank of candidate seaman fahnGefreiter and the M to the occupation Minen/ Maschinist/Marine etc ... anybody know ? This Ju-290 appears to have been the second abandoned there by 12 April 1945 according to this writer and then there was a Ju-290 from Finsterwalde on 20 April and another from Pargue on 26 April 1945. Did these include the three alleged to have flown to Manchuria werk no 10182, 10183, 10184 ? Does anybody know their fates ?
