Picture of the Week: AVweb's Flying Photography Showcase
Gravelly Lake Morning
Taken at Gravelly Lake, California (1Q5) Sunday, March 4, 2012. Early morning fog and an early game of fetch made a great picture!
Taken with Canon camera.

I took this picture in December 1975. We were moving from Florida to Washington and spent a couple of days in Tucson at Christmas. Story was the owner of this motel found this F4U Corsair, which he had flown, in the boneyard at Davis Monthan, bought it, and mounted it at his motel, where we saw it in Tucson, Arizona. Later he founded Pima Air Museum, at least that's what we heard. I scanned it in on a HP 4850 scanner while looking through old photo albums.
