Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Since our last edition of "Picture of the Week," AVweb readers have bombarded us with a steady stream of amazing aviation photos.  By Wednesday night, we had well over 100 submissions almost of all of them considered for one of our top spots this week.  We know you've heard this before, but the quality of photos we've received over the past few weeks is truly amazing.  Whatever you guys are doing taking photography classes, or just going to a lot of really good air shows keep it up!

The only downside to this upswing in "POTW" submissions is that we have to leave behind a lot of eye-popping photos.  So, before we take off into the skies with this week's top winners, we'd like to remind you that we ooh and ahh over every single "POTW" submission, and we take the time to read through your comments when each week's contest is done.  Many of you have contributed outstanding photos and may never have won a hat or even heard back from us we're really busy, honest! but we'd like you to know how much we appreciate your time and support.

So keep sending photos!  They really are the best part of our week.

Now, on to this week's pretty pictures!

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

Herb Kushner
of Bridgewater, New Jersey
edged out some fierce competitors this week to fill our
number one spot with hot air and blue skies.  As a reward
(and a heartfelt "thank you" for stealing our breath away),
we're sending Herb an official AVweb baseball cap.
