Together with the staff manning the Soviet Arctic, flew a German journalist Wiegand, specially invited by Colonel Walter Bruns. In addition, the flight director Dr. Eckener included in command of the ship over the state even 4 people. Who were these "aeronauts" still could not figure out then. There also seems interesting to add the characteristics that gave E. Ernst certain members of the crew. For example, about Dr. H. Eckener he wrote: "He is a civil suit, but probably is an officer." By the way, in the "Zeppelin" team was Eckener's son, E. Ernst is described as a man "purely Army image." You can also specify that a second radio operator on the LZ-127 was not Rolf Kluge, as stated in some publications on this flight.
