Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Ah, happy coincidence!  As we gear up for AirVenture 2004 in Oshkosh, whose name should appear on the blind ballot for our "PotW" winner?  None other than H.G. Frautschy of the EAA, who took this week's winning photo at Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh!  Congratulations, H.G. — not only did you win a licensed AVweb baseball cap to wear around the field at Oshkosh, but you also broke the streak of "PotW" winners from Michigan.  We look forward to seeing you in Oshkosh next week.

Speaking of Michigan:  What happened, guys?  Did you run out of aviation photos this week?  Not a single final-round contender from the unofficial capital of "PotW" country?

Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.
