AVweb's Picture of the Week ...
Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners
Breath-taking images continue to roll into AVweb headquarters by the dozen! It's getting harder and harder to pick a winner, but these nifty AVweb ball caps aren't going to give themselves away so it's nose to the grindstone, looking at our readers' stunning photo submissions week after week. After much deliberation, we've awarded this week's "POTW" title (and a complimentary baseball cap) to Gary Dikkers of Madison, Wisconsin. His winning T-38 cockpit photo was taken 30 years ago in the skies over Pueblo, Colorado. Dikkers was an Air Force instructor pilot at the time and worked hard to line the sun flare up with the IP's usual position in the backseat. "I wanted it to look as though the IP of the other airplane was all-powerful," writes Dikkers.
Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.
