Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

A couple of weeks ago, when we at AVweb were grousing about low turnout for our "Picture of the Week" contest, you were all on vacation!  Right?

At least, that's how it seems looking through this week's batch of pictures.  For the first time in recent memory, there were more pictures taken from planes than pictures of planes submitted to this week's contest.  Beautiful landscapes dominated the submissions this week, so we're showing you the top three airplane pictures first, then offering you three bonus pictures with our favorite locales.  (Even so, we had to leave out some great photos of Liberty Island and the River Thames that just wouldn't fit.)

Congratulations to Jud Phillips of Nashville, who will receive an official AVweb baseball cap for being our Number One "Picture of the Week."

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

caught this Turbo Porter in the act.
According to Christian, that's 200 gallons

took this shot during May 2004 at
South Prairie Airport's Cawley Field

a great desktop wallpaper for your computer!

Bonus Pictures

You wouldn't believe the number of great
landscape shots that arrived to our "POTW"
contest this week.  Here's a quick sampling:

Used with permission of George Mock

"Winter Flight"
George Mock of Windsor, Ontario (Canada)
is back with another icy photo, this one taken of the
Detroit skyline as George was following the Detroit River.
"Temperature was 10 F," writes George,
"but a beautiful view certainly makes you warm."

Used with permission of James Brogren

"Ft. Jefferson National Park"
On the other end of the spectrum,
James Brogren of Melbourne, Florida
attached only this comment to the
above photo: "A great place to visit."

Used with permission of Brad Hernke

"C-182 Sunset Reflection Near Mt. Stuart"
Finally, Brad Hernke of Seattle, Washington
caps off the week with a spectacular view of
from the Pacific Northwest.  (As if we needed
to tell you, Brad's photo also makes a
great desktop wallpaper.)
