Wesley David Archer in the 1930s produced pictures of WWI aircraft<br>
engaged in aerial combat that became a popular sensation in their day, but<br>
decades later were discovered to be falsified, and Wednesday in Australia<br>
they went up for auction. In 1933, the photos gained publicity through<br>
their use in the book Death In The Air: The War Diary And Photographs Of A<br>
Flying Corps Pilot. The publisher paid $20,000 for images that included<br>
midair collisions and a flaming aircraft with its pilot falling from the<br>
cockpit. But in 1984, when Archer's effects were donated to the Smithsonian<br>
Institute in Washington, D.C., original images gave away the<br>
truth. Wednesday, the fakes were expected to fetch more than $1000 from<br>
bidders.<br>
<br>
A woman claimed at the time that her husband had flown with a camera<br>
mounted on his plane and was later killed in battle. She disappeared from<br>
public view after payment for the images. Decades later, in 1984, workers<br>
at the Smithsonian discovered among Archer's still images photos similar to<br>
those that had been published, but with one major difference. Wires could<br>
be seen holding up the aircraft, giving them away as miniature planes.<br>
Archer, who was an American pilot and later (after his images were<br>
published) became a movie special effects creator, had airbrushed images<br>
he'd taken of the model aircraft to remove evidence of the wires. And the<br>
woman who had given credence to the origins of the purchased photographs<br>
was later discovered to be Archer's wife, according to Petapixel.com. The<br>
collection of images up for auction included 34 of Archer's "aerial"<br>
photographs sold through Noble<br>
