Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Yes, Team POTW is very good at making predictions:  Following last week's winning photo of cars 'n' airplanes, we've been deluged with photos of classic cars and classic planes!  Many of them are quite good, but so were this week's many, many non-car-themed entries.  (Did we mention this was a huge week for POTW entries?)  So, in the interest of fairness, we're shifting gears away from plane and car photos this week.  But you won't be disappointed.  We certainly weren't — in fact, we were impressed enough to send Brian Matz of Ohio a complimentary AVweb baseball cap for this week's winning photo!

Keep 'em coming, folks — even though we can't run every "Picture of the Week" entry, we sure do enjoy looking at them!

"Flying History"
Brian W. Matz of University Heights, Ohio sends us this image
of Jim Hammond taxiing his 1931 Aeronca C-3 to the parking area at the
National Aeronca Association Convention.  The C-3, once owned by its designer
Jean Roche, won the Grand Champion Antique award at the show.

AVweb continues to receive a large number of excellent images for our POTW contest. Here are some of the runners-up. Click on the links below to view larger versions.

"Maybe When You're Older ..."
Blake Herling of Arvada, Colorado took this photo at the
home of the B-17 Sentimental Journey.  While we had to shorten his
caption, we laughed long and hard at his original suggestion:
"Try explaining to a five-year-old that just because a plane is his size,
that doesn't mean he can fly it!"

"The Fly-In Wakes Up"
Robert Grace of St. Francis, Kansas took this shot from
a hot-air balloon at the Stearman Fly-In.  On the ground
below, others prepare to join him in the air.
