Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

We're sorely tempted to put on our stern face and wag our collective finger at you guys.  For the third week in a row, the number of pictures submitted to our "POTW" contest is lagging well below the average for this time of year.  But, frankly, the photos that are coming in are uniformly spectacular.  With only 48 pictures submitted this week, we had 27 in our final round of selections.  The odd result is that we're getting fewer submissions but working harder to decide which ones make the final cut.

We'd like to have more pictures, of course but as long as the quality is this high, we really can't complain.

(Instead, we'll beg:  Please send us pictures!)

A note about formatting:  As most of you have noticed, we've been tinkering with the format of pop-ups on this page for the past two weeks.  Despite our best attempts at testing, some of you had trouble with photos from our September 1 and September 8 editions.  We believe we've solved most of the compatibility issues (with invaluable and much-appreciated assistance from a handful of readers), but if you experience problems this week, let us know.  Please tell us what browser (and version) you're using and what specific problems you encounter.  We may not be able to answer everyone directly (particularly if we can solve your problem from here), but we are reading and tracking each problem with an eye toward solving it.

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

"Kicking the Rudder!"
You won't catch Patty Wagstaff standing still, but
that didn't stop Mark Silvestri of Upton, Massachusetts
from getting a photo.  Rather than wait for a dull moment,
Mark caught Patty in action in her Extra 300S at the Patuxent
River (Maryland) Air Show a few days ago.  Way to go, Mark!
