That's the thing about ebay. It is like having the world's biggest jumble sale at your fingertips, and you get charmed by something unexpected.
And you watch it quietly for months, and then the exasperated Hungarian seller suddenly halves the price, and you click automatically.

And now it's here, I have my doubts about whether it really does show a Bleriot flying over the fields of Europe. I think the farmers were actually watching a pigeon, and someone has photoshopped the Bleriot in. Or the 1910 equivalent, which may have involved drawing it in with a black pencil.
