Past POTW Winners
As usual, "Picture of the Week" went on hiatus during the
hectic week of AirVenture Oshkosh — but this year, we
received too many submissions that week to roll them all
into the following week's contest. So, without further
ado, here's a special bonus "POTW" gallery from Oshkosh week
Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of

Pete Thielen of Green Bay,
"I recently came to work for EAA and have been working
to familiarize myself with all aspects of flight. This
from the Wausau (Wisconsin) Balloon Rally and Glow,
and the balloon belongs to a friend and fellow employee."
A newcomer to EAA, eh, Pete? You did stop by
booth in Hangar A and visit with us at AirVenture, didn't
If so, you know exactly what the AVweb cap that's winging
way to your door looks like! Wear it with pride to all
balloon races you'll be attending later this year ... .

Now here's a family after our own heart:
Don Parsons of St. Peters, Missouri
didn't make it to Oshkosh this year, so
he and his son Skyler (pictured) decided
to have their own version of the fly-in right
in the backyard. "Ourshkosh," they called it!
Before the letters start pouring in: Yes, Don
'fessed up to doctoring the picture — it's actually
a composite with Skyler from one photo and a
radio-controlled model J-3 Cub from another.
And we didn't make any Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

"On Cloud 264"
of Maple Grove, Minnesota
didn't use any models in this shot — nor in any
of the half-dozen or so great photographs
in his 2005
Oshkosh gallery. Thanks for sharing
the gallery link with us, Max. We hope linking
to you from "POTW" doesn't flood
you with too much traffic ... !

"Santa Fe Sunrise"
Michael Callihan of
Albuquerque, New Mexico writes,
"This photo as taken on a November morning in 2002
awaiting passengers at the Santa Fe airport. The
Aluminum Overcast is in the foreground, and the
48-610, which became President Eisenhower's aircraft in
is shown in the background. The Connie has since been
relocated to Arizona."

of Titusville, Florida
treats us to what he calls a "typical scene
at Dunn Airpark ... a grassroots airport."

A year later, we're still drawn to (and frightened by)
photos taken in the aftermath of Hurricane Charley.
This one, from Joseph Marszal
of Winter Park, Florida,
serves as a grim reminder that hurricane season is
almost upon us again and that we should all
spend a few minutes making preparations.

"How to Know You Are On an Airway"
Just so we don't end on a somber note,
Brian Lee Robbins
of Columbus, New Jersey
demonstrates that Mother Nature can have a sense
of humor, too — and, as Brian says, she "must be
instrument-rated, as only one letter seems
to have been affected by the weather!"
