Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Busy day so far?  Sneak a few moments for yourself and peek at this week's batch of amateur aviation photos.  No skydivers, aerobatics, or wrecked planes this week just a handful of gorgeous aircraft photographed against idyllic landscapes.

This week's top winner comes all the way from Afghanistan, and photographer Byron Miranda will soon be sporting a brand-new AVweb cap for his efforts.  If you'd like one of these spiffy caps to keep the sun out of your eyes this summer, just send us your amateur aviation photos.  If your pic makes it into the final round, we'll spotlight your photographic genius right here on AVweb and if you're lucky enough to win the top spot, we'll send you one of those prestigious caps!


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

"Marine CH-53 Over Afghanistan"
Byron Miranda
sends us this photo of the astonishingly
beautiful landscape and a U.S. Marine CH-53 over
an Afghan lake.  "I hadn't been in country long," writes Byron,
"and was stunned to see the lake passing below us.
The most amazing blue water."  Thanks for sharing,
Byron your official AVweb cap is in the mail!
