Some explanations

1. The whole thing could have been a hoax, the photo was genuin. So what? Pay somebody to wear a spaceman suit, take a picture and claim that nobody else was there.

2. Without the internet, trolling took a lot of effort back in the days.

The first occurrence of the signal intrusion took place during WGN-TV (channel 9)'s live telecast of its primetime newscast, The Nine O'Clock News. During Chicago Bears highlights in the sports report, the station's signal was interrupted for about half a minute by a video of a person wearing a Max Headroom mask.   
   
The second one just happened to coincide with the Doctor Who episode- The station changed their frequencies to stop the first intrusion, and it took a little while for the intruder to locate the new frequency. The fact they were airing a Dr Who episode really had nothing to do with it...

1. Not necessarily a spaceman - could be just a very weird cloud formation with a black dot (a bird or quality of taken photo). The distance from the child and the spaceman is way off, compared to the angle the photo was taken, meaning the spaceman must have been huge as ****.

2. If you have the knowledge needed, it's not so difficult to hijack a tv show during the 1980's, when digital security was very lax, and there were lots of ways to bypass it completely.

3. There are plenty of John Does and unsolved cases - mostly related to the interlope world (where some people make it a living out of killing and leaving no clues or misleading clues behind).

4. Considering that I read it right, he hijacked a Boeing while IN FLIGHT ? That man deserves a medal and an honorary place in the US air force in my opinion.

5. In my opinion, the photo is photoshoped. I may be failing with this, but the difference in exposure between our subject and the rest of the people is quite off. There are other people in the middle of the crowd (ex old lady with glasses) which has her hair overexposed. The only overexposed part of the subject is a small part of his neck, but judging by the angle, his hair should've been overexposed as well (as with most of the people).


tl;dr Everything can and may be explained, at some point in time

Note to add to point 1. : There is a distinct possibility that there may have been an actual spaceman (seeing that the first human spaceflight took place in 1961) who was falling freely from space, and landed quite close to them. I know it sounds off, but it's the only other semi-viable explanation I can find for this "mystery".

Just about number four, it was in flight, and a dude confessed to it on his death bed but they couldn't prove it was him.

That is all.

That is so damn badass....

Considering how computer security was very weak before the 1990's, it was pretty easy to do some things and get away with it.
Computers didn't have the massive memory they have nowadays, therefore the main focus was performance over security. Nowadays, they can store all sort of huge hunks of data (gyga/tera/penta/.../ bytes) which may be considered irrelevant (for now), hoping they can find a use for it in the future (ex. weather stations or video cameras everywhere).

Clouds? Look closely there are buttons and a black mask part.
I'm not sure what you're trying to prove on 1-4, but 5 isn't photoshopped. As far as I know at least, there are many weird instances of that kind of thing. There's a thing like that where somebody has a cellphone or something.

I have some experience in photo manipulating, but not enough to precisely spot every mistake.

Something else that seems off about the individual at 5. is that you can see a lot more detail in him than others around (fabric, patterns, facial hair etc). If one were to take a photo from the 1940's and edit it with 2010's technology, they may be bound to commit an error in regards to the consistency of details.

maybe it's just that they edited the photo to give him more detail so you can see him better.
