Found another reference that needs fleshing out:

There is mention of a Condor piloted by ? Mons which took photos over Reykjavík on a Sunday morning at the end of March in 1941. Mons reported this information apparently after he survived being shot down. They were flying with no bombs on the Reykjavík (southwest Iceland) missions.
