If you google IRFANVIEW.
Download it.
it is a free photo tool.

Then when you install, click image then resize/resample from the menu choose half and then see what happens.

I can't belive I'd forgot I had this picture on my old hard drive!  A cousin who lives near the crash site and come across this picture and only now I've remembered.

It is believed to be of the crew...

Anges Weild - Annan - married William Blenkinsop - Annan
Jane Scott, Roxborough who married William Hope (children, Wilhelmina Amelia, Horatio Nelson Trafalga Hope!) 
James Blenkinsop (born Dumfries)
James Blenkinsop (born Lancashire)
Wilhelmina Blenkisop (born Surrey) married Arthur Price (Wales)
Henry Reginald Price (Brecon, South Wales)
Evans (Coelbren, Wales)

ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PICTURE IT SAYS..."ERNEST, THIRD FROM LEFT"  I do not know who has written this and cannot confirm if it is correct"

caroline,all the crew apart from young joe burke came from quebec,joe burke was from new brunswick,i reckon if you put that in the quebec papers you will be successful,gerard dusablons real name was,joseph,lionel,underic du sablon,and arthur grouix is grouLx,i tried seeing if their ages would give a clue,but no chance,two were 20,two were 21,one was 22 and william,allison was 28,dont think its william,but it could be any of the rest,good luck caroline,ime another one rooting for you,mack

I agree with mack, the fellow on far right looks like a great match...although the first at left might also fit, possibly.  Bit hard to tell, but definitely one of those two!
