"Electrical Fury on the Tarmac"
Last week's Oshkosh photos sparked
a landslide of great electrical storm photos
that arrived in this week's submissions.
Our favorite comes from
of Olathe, Kansas, who took this photo
at the Johnson County Executive Airport.
More favorites from this week's
generous selection of "POTW" entries!

"Memories of the Early Years"
Likewise, we found a lot of classic WWI-era
planes (warbirds and others) in our inbox this
Keith Robb of Toronto, Ontario (Canada) sent us
pic of him piloting an SE5a from Ontario's Great War
Flying Museum at the Geneseo (NY) Air Show.
Eric Dumigan snapped the photo.

of Soldotna, Alaska
took off his heavy woollen gloves long
enough to capture the sunrise over
Endicott Island in early May. This one went
straight to our desktop wallpaper file ... .

"Patrolling the Front"
of Fayetteville, Georgia
submitted our other favorite classic paint job
of the week: Pilot Ron Glover "flying tight
formation in his Aerodrome Eindecker EIII
experimental homebuilt." Tight formation, indeed!

"High, Low, Fast, Slow"
From experimentals to a tried-and-true
(but still not certificated) design, we thought
it appropriate to close this week's installment
with two gulls and a jet from Jud
of Nashville, Tennessee. The gulls were
designed and built in Edisto Island, South
Carolina, where they held their own air show.
