The Hindenburg letter (now in a museum) is a prized example of a macabre side of airmail philately called "Crash Post", That is, mail recovered after an "interrupted flight" or aircraft crash event. A little ghoulish, but each a bit of history.

In the US, if the mail was whole it would be stamped "interrupted flight" along with a location/date. Else, identifiable elements would be sent in a "Official Business" envelope. Other countries used different systems.

...The mail must go through...
