AVweb's Picture of the Week ...
Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners
All right, we confess: We were beginning to worry about the slowdown in reader-submitted "Picture of the Week" entries. But, thankfully, our worries were unfounded AVweb readers turned out in force this week, with dozens of great new "POTW" contenders. The Golden Age of Reader-Submitted Photos is back! Don Laffranchi Jr. leads the pack this week, with a WWII-era winning photo that's sure to bring a tear to your eye. We won't be sending Don a recommissioned P-38 but we do have the next best thing, an official AVweb logo baseball cap. To add one of these spiffy hats to your wardrobe, make with the clicky and send us your "POTW" contenders!
Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.
"What a Waste"
Don Laffranchi Jr. of McKinleyville, California sends us this week's winning photo,
brought out of Europe by his grandfather at the end of WWII, showing "at least 13 brand-new
P-38s ... that were 'de-milled.' ... Brand new!," laments Laffranchi. "I think I'm going to throw up!"
(Ahem. National governments should note that AVweb is always open to receiving P-38 donations.)
