Yessir! One of yer ilk, I would say.

"Bitter Bierce," as he was nicknamed, was probably best known for a short story about the Civil War titled "An Occurrence at Owl Creek," hailed by some as the best short story in all American literature.

Like many Americans, his soul was crushed by the Civil War, although he lived at least until 1914, when he disappeared while touring Pancho Villa's Mexican Revolution.

So, I suppose he might have had some contacts with early airplanes.

Wikipedia did a good summary
