For those of you who may not be aware, the then Colonel Tibbets flew the Enola Gay, a B29 bomber to Japan on August 5th 1945 and dropped an atomic bomb, codenamed `Little Boy` over Hiroshima to bring an end to the war.
The devastation and terrible loss of human life, was followed by a second bomb on Nagasaki, which forced the Japanese to surrender to the allies.
Tibbets retired as a Brigadier General in the 1960`s, and died in his Columbus, Ohio, home on November 1, 2007.
The poster has shared some photographs he took of the Enola Gay at the National Air and Space Museum in Virginia, and in one you can clearly see a human face in the pilots seat, and positioned proportionate to the size of a human figure.

He claims the face looks like Tibbets.
At first I suspected a light anomaly caused by a reflection on the perspex glass, but as the camera focusses in much closer you can see a face not unlike Tibbet`s.
He has contacted the museum who are in official (to be expected) denial as after all, even in death Paul Tibbets is a controversial figure.
I`ve included a few of Tibbets photographs to compare by. If this is a freak of light or a hoax, it stands to be quite amazing.
