Susie Beaching Mermaid M6

Ed. Note: Rick asked a good question that we haven't encountered in a while: "Why all of the required info [on the photo submission form]?" The main reason is so we can ship out an AVweb ball cap to each week's "POTW" photographer though it does occasionally come in handy to have submitters' e-mail addresses if we need to contact them with questions.

Lake and Loons on the Lake

Blue Skies for Boeing

This picture was taken shortly after the Dreamliner arrived. We, the lady pilots, were waiting to take our annual group picture, and I thought that this was an interesting shot. Several others saw what I was doing and started taking the same picture. And no, it is just off my Cannon D10 no Photoshop. OSH, Friday, July 29 at 10:25 AM, while waiting for the photoshoot.

The Advantages of Airplane Ownership

That's right. While others are enjoying the afternoon flying, you can spend it washing the airplane! Taken with an iPhone; no manipulations. It really was a nice day to be in the wash pit and it followed 4.9 hours of flying, so it wasn't all bad!

FiFi !

I took this photo from the South 40 campground at OSH. Camera was Sony A330 DSLR with 55-200 zoom lens. I especially like the smoke in the photo and the P-38 in the background!

Landing at Sayward, British Columbia

The village of Sayward is only accessible by sea, air, or rugged gravel road. This seaplane emerged from the mist over the Johnstone Strait and showed the quickest way to get there! Taken from a whale-watching boat. Unmodified. Nikon L100 Coolpix, 10MP.
