Ray,Nope, wrong, wrong, wrong.Not so easy when it is not a Civil War general, huh?I have foiled your plans to win. I have foiled you all! Ha Haaaa Ha.PJM
Guy Gibson? I'm having a hard time with the time period. The clothes don't match the plane.
Sheila,Good morning, and thank you for playing. Unfortunately, the person is not Guy Gibson. Also, it is not Mel Gibson if that was going to be your next guess.PJM
Looks a bit like Curtis Willard.
My bad, Charles Willard

William,Congratulations on a win in the most difficult contests ever.Please let us know how you did it.PJM
By surfing and stumbling across a picture of early aviators. He was a dead ringer right down to the funny looking tie. I feel great today.
Congratulations William! I couldn't believe it when I logged on at 9:30 and the game was still on! We just returned to the house from setting up for our town's art festival. I hustled to research, but was foiled by William's head start. My husband knew Sopwith, "from Sopwith Camel?", right off when I told him the answer. He says he thinks its the one that Snoopy flew against the Red Baron.
I was beginning to think PJMwas going to win, thanks to youWilliam, he didn't. Good work.

Ray,Sure rub it in. I am always polite to game participants, and would appreciate the same from you. Watch it, or you might replace Nate as my nemisis. Next week, I will prevail. Yes, I will prevail.PJM

Excellent sleuthing William! I couldn't play today, I was going to a "disaster/civil defense" meeting. I normally refuse to go anywhere on Saturday mornings because I have to play "Mystery Person" but I thought this might be a meeting worthy of my time...and it was. :-)
Yes, PJM, I do teach history - Early Colonial History! BTW, do you know who was the first US president to go up in an aircraft?
Ah, my guess would be Franklin Roosevelt
I believe it was his cousin, TR...Good job William, BTW...
Oh great! I go away for a weekend, camping in the wilderness with the Boy Scouts, and I return to find that my sworn opponent has gone shopping for a new nemesis! PJM, will no 'Do a Good Turn Daily' go unpunished?For Lady Anne, if you teach Colonial History, I'm sensing that your question is a trick. I'm going to have to guess Thomas Jefferson in a balloon (perhaps in his trip to France).
