Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Welcome back to "Picture of the Week," where AVweb readers take over the site to share their amateur aviation photos.  This week's photos were a bumper crop, and we had to leave several amazing shots on the cutting-room floor.  (If only there were room for all of them!)  But one photo stood out as this week's winner — Robert Westwater's photo of the legendary Charles Lindbergh "before he became famous."  According to Mr. Westwater, the photo came from his wife's great aunt, whose husband was a good friend of Lindbergh.

Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.
