Look-a-likes are popular with world leaders. I remember one time at Brize Norton when King Hussein arrived on a visit to UK. Two helicopters arrived at the same time to carry him to where he was going and then two King Husseins stepped out of his aircraft together and one boarded each helicopter. Anyone trying to get him only had a 50-50 chance.

I was on the see-in crew and was close enough to get a clear view, but I'll be darned if I could spot the difference!
