Anfrage an NSA verschickt


Ein Flugzeugabsturz soll nach mehr als 50 Jahren untersucht werden. Es geht um den Tod des UN Generalsekretärs Hammarskjoeld.

Informationen und Dokumente sollen sich im Besitz des Geheimdienstes  NSA befinden.   

Hierüber berichtet die Zeit:

Aus diesem Grunde wurde am 18.3.2015 eine Anfrage an die NSA verschickt:

Dear Madams and Sirs,

I wrote two books that have been published at the Berlin University server.



In these books I describe the biographies of my family, the Schaumburg-Lippes. My granduncle Adolf Fürst zu Schaumburg-Lippe was against the nazi regime and he was prosecuted by the Gestapo in 1934-1936.
The 26 of march of 1936 he died in an air crash in Mexiko. International press wrote many articles about this mysterious accident.

New York Times wrote the 28 of march 1936
"For reasons which will never be known the pilot turned in the direction of Amecameca and in some unaccountable way lost control when making the manouvre."
"While it is impossible to say with certainty that there was no mechanical failure, yet from the looks of the clearing where the plane was found it is thought that had there been motor failure the pilot would not have attempted to land, since  by gliding two or three hundred yards he could have entered the valley of Amecameca at sufficient altitude to enable him in make a safe landing".
"mexican Ministry of Communications said it was believed the pilot. at the request of the passengers flew unusually close to the volcanoes to permit the tourists to take pictures".

NEW YORK TIMES 27.3.1936, "Heard engines miss fire. Observers in this little town of Amecameca, watched the giant air kiner falter as the pilots sought altitude to fly over the pass. Then they heard the engines miss fire. A few minutes later, after the plane had circled the little mountain twice its pilot pointed toward Mexiko D.F, but slithered down among the rocky crap of the saddle bewtween the two volcanoes."

"The plane said a witness, of the accident, passed over the town of Amecameca flying low when it was between the volcanoes it apparently developed engine trouble, for it circled as if the pilot intended to return to the landing field. Suddenly the ship became enveloped in smoke and it crashed with great speed to the earth and burned completely."
The flight was a flight from Mexicana de Aviacion, a subsidiary of Pan American Airways.
The Pan American airways records are in the Miami University archives.

What is very suprising is that in the archives of Panam Records there is a file:

Folder 1 120a 57: Ford Tri-Motored Airline: South of Mexico City, Captain Freciado J. Acosta, 1936.

This file is very astonishing.

According to the archives information, I got this response:

Thank you for contacting the Special Collections department at the University of Miami Libraries. Attached to this email are two PDF scans, both featuring newspaper clippings. These two scans represent the entirety of the folder.

That means that the only documented information about the aircrash are  articles taken from newspapers. There are no further documents, although that accident was one of the worst (14 persons died).
My granduncle Adolf Fürst zu Schaumburg-Lippe,


had vast properties around the world and was in the focus of nazi regime. Two days after his death, his brother Wolrad, a pro nazi family member took over control. The other brother, Friedrich Christan was the adjutant of Goebbels and the third one Stephan was a member of SS and Attache in Foreign Office in South America. My Grandfather was the only no nazi.

Hermann Göring asked in march 1936 personally for the records regarding the accident (I know it from files of the German Consul in Mexico, Collemberg).

So my question is, if you have records regarding this disaster that affected a subsidiary of a us american company and a american citizen who died, the military Adrian Borchers, who was the pilot. Other versions say that the pilot was Preciado Acosta.

If you could provide informations about this accident I would be very grateful. It could be that the aircrash was no accident, that german Gestapo agents acted  in Mexiko.

Sincerely

NSA antwortete am 20 April 2015:
Es gibt nach erster Prüfung keinern Anhaltspunkt für Dokumente zu diesem Vorgang.

Absturzstelle in Mexiko

Absturzstelle

Absturz geschah um 11.06 am 26 März 1936.
Um 11 Uhr wurde Amecameca überflogen.
Die Geschwindigkeit dürfte bei 120 kmh gelegen haben.

New York Times berichtete am 28 März 1936

"For reasons which will never be known the pilot turned in the direction of Amecameca and in some unaccountable way lost control when making the manouvre."

an anderer Stelle hiess es: "While it is impossible to say with certainty that there was no mechanical failure, yet from the looks of the clearing where the plane was found it is thought that had there been motor failure the pilot would not have attempted to land, since  by gliding two or three hundred yards he could have entered the valley of Amecameca at sufficient altitude to enable him in make a safe landing".

ebenso kann gelesen werden:
"mexican Ministry of Communications said it was believed the pilot. at the request of the passengers flew unusually close to the volcanoes to permit the tourists to take pictures".

Die Absturzstelle befindet sich recht weit von den Vulkanen, so dass Zweifel an dieser Aussage bestehen.
