    Looks like Django's playing a classical guitar in the photo. Thanks for the great analysis!
    I've never been a guitar player, but I've played one on stage.

    This is a photo of the actual Pan American Clipper that Django travelled to the USA on. The two ladies are Pamela Churchill and Princess Matchabelli, both of whom are mentioned in the newspaper article.

    Django arrived in NYC with a Pan American Word Airways flight on a Lockheed Constellation L-049-46-26 named "Paul Jones".

    Django's visa clearly indicates that he arrived on flight NC88856 thus "Paul Jones" and not on a "Yankee Clipper" as indicated by Michael Dregni in his excellent book on Django

    Here's Django's plane
