These photos and their dates strike me as odd. All three are on different dates, but the pilot is wearing the same hat and shirt. And in two of the photos, the one on Oct 23 and Nov 22, the wrinkles in the shirt are exactly the same! Granted it is 2 different photographers, the 3 are eerily similar.
Just some observations, but I find it hard that you could mistake dates like that. So how so you go about correcting something like that?

In the first photo the pilot wears something else. It may be blue, but in #1 it is a shirt and in #2/3 it is a coat.

p.s. Do you often go into Sherlock Holmes mode? Sheesh.

Photo 1 very different to 2 and 3....
Probably a coincidence for the last two... Is normal he uses the same jacket..

The second two sure do appear to be taken within moments of each other. The folds in the pilot's jacket are identical, as is the position of the headset cord.

Whatever the case, he sure doesn't appear to be enjoying his flight.

Did anyone play I-Spy and notice that the tree that fronts the second warehouse is missing in one of the photos. The different dates may seem to make sense after all...

The tree is just outside the picture in the third photo and to the left.

I don't think it's missing. I think it's off-screen, just to the left of the third photo (photo id:699108). The white fence (or whatever that is) is to the right of the tree.

I would have thought that one these may have got a double or common rejection. I thought thats what the common or double rejections were all about?

Nice pics regardless and a weird looking aircraft too.

I really don't care that the photos are in the database, but my point is that the date on atleast one of these photos is wrong.

Actually, the first photo shows a different shirt. It's blue with short sleeves. In the other two pictures, he's wearing a blue jacket with long sleeves, and what looks like a brown shirt underneath.

Did he have to change clothes after wiping the bogey he was picking in photo #1 on his shirt?  Wink

Not only that, but in photo 2/3 the same truck is parked in the same exact place, in the background, right next to the tree.
