This image meets the description of the rose better than most of the other images on this site (i.e. 34 petals). The others differ a lot, so more than only one rose is shown. Funny this image is the only one that is labelled 'incorrect', and the labelling member didn't take the effort to drop a note or provide a photo.

I don’t think the photo from Alba’ has the “shining” (1994 ref) “glittering leaves” (2003 ref) of ‘Aviateur Blériot’. To me, it seems to have more of a multiflora background.

not the number of the petals is decisive (just this is very variable with Aviateur B.). Bloom form, buds and foliage show that the rose on your photo is not a hybrid wichurana of 1910. These first direct crosses with Rosa wichurana have quite a special look.
The rose in your picture is 'younger'. Multiflora? Maybe, i think chinensis.
