Remember it has already been established that Palmer knows something about flying. Yes, the men reject his offer to “give ya a lift” right out of hand but that may have been only because he was stoned, not incompetent. Besides, even if his skills were questionable, they would likely be more then adequate when bolstered by The Thing's vast technical knowledge. So, there you are, Thing-Palmer alone with the helicopter, why not make your escape?

Anyway, I became obssessed with finding out who got infected, when and how, and have watched the movie in detail hundreds of times now. You guys have the evidence right in front of you.
The shadow belongs to Blair and in order to conclude this you must use facts and not ambiguos evidence, as to guess the shadow by its shape. Anyone can have different appearance in a shadow, and that is a fact.
Back to the evidence, the pictures posted before clearly show what I noticed after the 50ish time I watched the movie. The ventilation shafts and the ax shouldn't be used as references, because there are axes and shafts on both ends of the hallway and on the walls. There are two things that remain fixed on both perspectives of the hallway: the cylinder tanks and the boxes.
So using the cylinders and boxes as fixed references for the hallway, you must conclude that dog-thing enteres the second room on the right (shown in minute 15:40), and not the third as many have posted.
When dog-thing reveals itself on 29:30 and chaos erupts, pause the frame at 30:20 and you will see it is Blair who emerges from the room dog-thing entered, which is the second room but now the perspective is flipped.
You can argue and question all of Blair's actions anytime anyday, but think about this: Blair being the first thing is both evidence of him being the smartest guy in the camp and the one who had more time to build the space ship underneath his shack. Another thing: during the autopsy, Fuchs finds some torn clothes. Those clothes belong to Blair, no question.
Now, moving on to Norris and Palmer.
Norris was likely the second assimilation. When Nauls interrupts the group after MacReady comes back from the crater, he throws some torn long jonts he found in his kitchen.
