Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

It's been another terrific week for "POTW" submissions so good, in fact, that we snagged 47 images for our personal desktop wallpaper.  (At one a day, we've already got enough unique wallpapers to last us until late spring!)  Here are the top six, capped off by the best photo of New Jersey we've ever published.*  Congratulations to Geoffrey Hickey, who'll be receiving an official AVweb baseball cap for his photo.

* We didn't really check.

To get a shot at next week's baseball cap, submit your photo.

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

Francesco Fato of Pierrefonds, Quebec (Canada)
actually caught on film.

"Can You Name This Rare Plane?"
That's the challenge issued by Rock Swanson
of Encinitas, California in our first "POTW" quiz question.
His hint:  "This is my mother and CFI in November of '41.
Location is Gardenia, California.  Only six of these planes were built."

"How Many Can You Name?"
And if you enjoy this sort of game,
Maurice Caudill of Peoria, Illinois
promises to keep you busy for a while
with "just a few of the flock at a central
Illinois fly-in breakfast last summer."
