AVweb's Picture of the Week ...
Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners
It's the last week of 2004, and AVweb readers have settled in for their long winter's nap. While we were dutifully wrapping presents, checking our lists, and eating giant hams, a handful of AVweb readers took time to share some of their best amateur aviation photos. Let's have a look at the last of the 2004 pictures, starting with this week's baseball hat winner, Marty Tippin of Missouri.
Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.

Marty Tippin of Lee's Summit, Missouri chills us
with this week's winning photo. Following a 2002 ice storm in
Kansas City, "this Grumman AA-5 Traveler was sitting
on its tail from all the ice," writes Marty.
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.
Bryon Stoll of New London, Wisconsin spent his
holidays at the EAA Air Museum in Oshkosh, where
he snapped this shot of one of the three Christen Eagles
flown by Pobererzny, Gene Soucy, and Charles Hilliard —
lit by holiday lights, natch!
