Picture of the Week: AVweb's Flying Photography Showcase

Farewell Over the Capitol

In the 1940s
Long after my mom passed away, I found this old Kodachrome 35mm slide in some of her stuff and scanned it. It was probably taken somewhere back east on a trip in the '40s.
Ed. Note: Thanks for sharing, Ron! We'd been saving this one for a second edition of vintage photos, but after ye olde editor spent the weekend scanning old photos with his own mom, well — it was impossible hold this one in reserve any longer.
The Heavens Beckoning
This Is Why I Fly
Sunset over middle Tennessee.
Shot on a cell phone; no manipulations.
Guam Naval Base
Looking down on Apra Harbor, Guam. The airstrip was built by the Japanese during WWII for launching Zeros.
The photo was taken with Hipstamatic on an iPhone ... no idea what the settings were.
Parked for Dinner
Harvey Field, Washington (S43).
Aircraft: Mooney M20C.
Used an iPhone 4.
First Flight Since 1952
Restorer Glenn Peck flies the sole-surviving Mono Monosport. The aircraft, built in 1929, was serial number 4 of only 15 built.
Venison and a Cub
Even white-tail deer cannot resist the charm of a Supercub. Feeding near a 1958 PA-18A, the deer seem quite at home.

The only nice part of a rainy below-minimums day that we spent in the race track before giving up and diverting.
