Fair use rationale for Image:Nungesserindiana.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Nungesserindiana.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

I'd like to confirm if (for the purposes of List of people who have disappeared) Nungesser's disappearance was/is/can/should be considered mysterious. As the only mysterious element of his disappearance seems to be whether he crashed in the Atlantic or else in Newfoundland or Maine, I've added {{fact}} tags to the following paragraphs:

intro: The disappearance is considered one of the great mysteries in the history of aviation, and modern speculation is that the aircraft was either lost over the Atlantic, or possibly crashed in Newfoundland or Maine.

Nungesser disappears: Over the years there have been various investigations to try to determine what happened to Nungesser and Coli. Most believe that the plane crashed over the Atlantic due to a squall, but the aircraft has never been recovered. The leading alternate theory is that the aircraft may have crashed in Maine.

Check The White Bird article, there are plenty of extra sources there. --Elonka 23:01, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Also, the article on The White Bird alone has anything significant on the Newfoundland possibility, so perhaps it could be tucked in here as well, alongside Maine? (talk) 03:23, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Stunt work on Dawn Patrol[edit]

Nungesser flew for Howard Hawks in the making of the original version of Dawn Patrol (the 1930 one). The film was stalled in post-production when Nungesser disappeared, and debuted after his death. This was noted in a rather ambiguous paragraph, but has been removed by another editor on the grounds that because the movie appeared after Nungesser's death, he could not have appeared in it.

It turns out a citation is needed for this section. In the process of adding the cite, once proof of Nungesser's stunt work is confirmed, please write in the film work if possible. It is one of the facts about Nungesser that is best known.
