Picture of the Week: AVweb's Flying Photography Showcase
Oops in Kivalina
Kivalina, Alaska back in my Part 135 days with Yute Air, based out of Kotzebue.
The photo was taken in southern California by Brandon Inks, an engineer at Scaled Composites. The eagle is owned by the engineer responsible for getting Boomerang back flying.

Pulled Over for Breakfast — Virgin River Gorge

Cell phone camera.
G-164D Agcat Herbicide Application
Application over rice fields at Sutter Basin, California. Bob's Flying Service is the owner of the aircraft. Russ Stocker, pilot. Some enhancement was done in CS5, mainly cropping and saturation. Canon T2i. Sutter Basin, California.

"Have You Seen My Mom?"
Is this ultralight seen at AirVenture 2011 a B-29 offspring — or maybe a parasite? I wonder how many would fit in the bomb bays.

The Business "End" of FiFi
Taken at AirVenture 2011.
An Afternoon in the Sun
Taken at 3KK in Kankakee, Illinois. Slightly cropped. Sony Cybershot.
F-5s at Sun 'n Fun
F-5s make a low pass at Sun 'n Fun '09.
Taken at the Scott Air Force Base air show last year. Cropped with just a little fill light so the tail numbers showed up better using Picasa. Sony A330. It would be nice to be able to upload more than one pic at a time.
Ed. Note: While we appreciate the thought, Gary, there's an ulterior motive to our limiting the upload to one photo at a time. In the interest of showcasing as many photographers as possible, we run only one submission per entrant each week — and multiple uploads would mean that we might get to see more photos, but most of them wouldn't get a turn in the spotlight for our readers to enjoy.
