Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Californian Kendall Mauldin takes home top honors in this week's "POTW" contest with a SpaceShipOne photo we kinda wish we'd taken! Great job, Kendall we're sending you a nifty AVweb baseball cap as a token of our appreciation.

If you want an AVweb cap of your own, send us your best amateur aviation photos. Funny, exciting, serene, or as downright strange as this week's bonus picture, your photo is sure to bring some joy and mirth to our workday. So what are you waiting for? Submit!

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