  3. Mike,
    This person is not Frank Stanton.

    Only I know the identity of the Mystery Person!

  5. Actually, this one was an easy one for me. Last week, when trying to figure out Harry Atwood, I stumbled across John Moisant. Most of the first photos I saw of him were of him with his head turned. As I kept looking for additional photos of John Moisant to see if it was the mystery person, I saw this one with the cat on his shoulder. I just had to look at my wrong guesses from last week to see which one it was.

  6. How was your Thanksgiving? I'm trusting that your family enjoyed turkey and not peacock.

  7. NOTE TO SELF:

    Do not have two contests in a row on same theme. Must defeat the evil Nate Mass.

  8. Nate,
    We had a nice thanksgiving. My nephew came home for thanksgiving from Afghanistan, so we enjoyed spending thanksgiving with him. Had not seen him in several months.

    Happy to report all peacocks lived through thanksgiving, and we went for the traditional walmart butterball turkey.

  10. Evil Nate Maas: Why don't you be a Jeopardy contestant and win thousands of dollars. We will cheer for you then.

    For now, can you give the rest of us a CHANCE?

    (just kidding, admire your savvy)

  15. I was joking about the cat's name on my first post, and then I read a Wikipedia article about Moisant and they mention that he took his cat, Mademoisell Fifi, on a flight across the English Channel in 1910. This could very well be Fifi.

  16. The international airport of New Orleans, Louisiana was originally named Moisant Field in John Moisant's honor, though it has since been renamed Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

    The airport retains its "MSY" identifier, derived from the airport's origins as "Moisant Stock Yards" the name given to the land where Moisant's fatal airplane crash occurred, and upon which the airport was later built.
