  1. Nate,
    Welcome to the contest.

    I see the resemblance, but no not Wilbur.

  3. Mark,
    It is not Arthur Goebel.

    Looks like we have a real contest going this week.

  6. Oh, good, there's the PJM we all know and love. For a moment there, based on your first answer, I thought you might have been ill.

  7. Nate,
    Your latest entry is no better than the pathetic first two.

    William,
    Your entry joins the long list of pitiful attempts this morning.

    Only I know the mystery person!

  8. Mark,
    Is that your final answer? If so, it is not correct.

    Wow, we have a bunch of half-baked entries this morning.

  9. We have a winner.

    My nemisis, the evil Nate Maas has foiled me again.

    Yes indeed, it is Harry Atwood.

  10. Your contest regularly expands my mind. Until today, I was unaware how many early aviators looked so much alike.

  11. Nate,
    A lot of them wore that funny looking little hat.

  12. Yeah, it could be the hat, or it could be the that so many died so young and before too many photos had been taken of them.

  13. Good contest today PJM!

    I didn't find the hat confusing. But the fact that all the mentioned tries in the contest were what we call back home "fancy lads". You just can't tell one from another. lol!

    Hope everyone has a nice turkey day!

  14. Yes, it was the "fancy lads" aspect that had me perplexed.

  15. My, he *is* all dressed up, isn't he? Well, when the plane crashed, he'd be dressed for the funeral. (That's not nice, is it?) S'funny, I'd love to go up in a hot air balloon, but HATE flying in an airplane or any sort.

  16. It is certainly interesting for me to read this post. Thank you for it. I like such themes and anything connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more on that blog soon.

  17. I missed the contest today, tending
    to routine matters. Would have been
    a hard one for me...unless I got
    lucky.

    As always, well done Nate.
