Current POTW Winner |
Past POTW Winners
Submissions dipped just a tiny bit this week — but
quality certainly didn't. Of 52 pictures submitted to
this week's "POTW" contest, 37 were in our "final contender"
pile. The happy side effect is a fantastic crop
of pictures to share with AVweb readers.
As always, our first-place winner (Lee Wonnacott of
Crystal, Michigan) takes home an official AVweb baseball
cap for his efforts. To get a shot at the top spot (and one of those nifty caps), don't forget to submit your own photos.
Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of

Ryan Lunde of Laramie,
tells one of many great stories we heard
this week: "My friend Eric (pictured) and I
were ferrying this Stinson 108 from Green Bay to
Denver when our tailwheel went flat on takeoff from Eureka,
South Dakota. We continued on to Sidney, Nebraska,
we were lucky enough to have a grass runway pointed directly
the 25-knot wind and landed safely after a very nervous
To top it all off, Sidney Aviation is American Champion
and had a new tire and tube on hand. Eric is an A&P
it quickly. After all, there need to be a few
A&P-at-work photos on
'POTW' every now and then."
AVweb hopes that our A&Ps will note how
graciously we side-stepped the obvious joke.
