  • Sunset on a Sleeping Air Field

    Gilbert Benzonana of Grand Lancy, Geneva (Switzerland)

  • The End (Inca Crop Circle)

    Daniel Spitzer, M.D. of Piermont, NY

    Note: This is not your typical pretty plane in a pretty location photo! We have recently been assaulted with end-of-the-Earth predictions -- from the Fiscal Cliff to Sequester to Global Warming to the Russian Meteor. The end of the Mayan calendar in December was soooo 2012! But, recently flying over New York's Hudson Valley, I noticed a new crop circle sent by our Inca friends reminding us that the End is indeed nigh!

    Location: From 2,000 feet AGL, WEETS intersection.
