AVweb's Picture of the Week ...
Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners
We predicted it, and it came true! No, not the results of NBA Finals the flood of "aircraft at sunset" pictures that arrived at AVweb headquarters following last week's themed edition of "POTW." While the photos are spectacular, we can't run sunset photos all the time so this week we've opted to supply three completely unrelated images for your ogling pleasure. For his walk down memory lane with two airplanes, a classic Corvette, and a camera, Dr. Edward E. Boas Jr. takes home "POTW" honors. This means Dr. Boas will be receiving a coveted AVweb baseball cap just in time for baseball season! (Hmm, we'd better get back to making predictions ... .)
Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.
"Old, Older, Oldest"
Dr. Edward E. Boas Jr. of Chesapeake City, Maryland sends us this photo
of his 1966 Cessna Skylane C182J, his 1957 Corvette, and (in the background)
his friend's one-owner 1946 Piper J3 not only did the friend buy the Piper new in '46;
the Corvette is serial number 0002! Thanks for sharing the trip down memory lane, Dr. Boas!
