Narrative:
Gefreiter Helmut Fehn crashed between Oberlinxweiler and St Wendel (today near the Fresenius company), presumably while on a courier flight. Children saw him waving to them before he presumably hit a power line and the Klemm began to smoke. The completely burnt remains of the pilot were first taken by ambulance to the auditorium of the grammar school and stored there.
