AVweb's Picture of the Week ...
Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners
Yet another Michiganite (Michigander?) takes home top honors in "PoTW"! Heather Johnson receives the golden AVweb baseball cap for her perfect shot of a de Havilland Tiger Moth. How are you guys doing it up there — do you get a free camera with every checkride in now? No, don't tell us the secret — just keep sending these amazing photos! As for the rest of you — are you going to take this lying down? Is Michigan really the new capital amateur aviation photography? Well ... ?

"1945 de Havilland Tiger Moth over Michigan Farmland"
Heather Johnson of Milan, Michigan tells us, "As I understand it,
this is the last Tiger Moth to roll off the Morris production line." She also recommends
Marshall, Michigan (where the photo was taken) for its "vibrant GA community"
and Shuler's, a local restaurant with a free shuttle to the airport

Paul Drexler was the photographer
... and how could we look ourselves in the eye tomorrow if we didn't share
this photo Robbie Culver sent us from Waukegan, Illinois?
