Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

We admit to having a brief bout of panic when we realized there were only a couple dozen "Picture of the Week" submissions in last week's contest.  Thankfully, this week sees a return to form for "POTW," with over a hundred entries flooding our submission system, duking it out for pictorial supremacy.

The winner of this week's frantic melee is Steve Durtschi of Centerville, Utah.  Steve's fetching midwestern skyline fought well (against tough competition) and earns the photographer a well-deserved Official AVweb baseball cap.  Wear it with pride, Steve!

We'd also like to thank the many readers who sent us pictorial tributes to Jimmy Franklin and Bobby Younkin, especially Bryon Stoll and Bob Harrington.  Even though most of these tributes involved copyrighted images and couldn't be published on AVweb, we're glad you took the time to share them with us.

Stay safe out there, submit some photos, and don't forget to visit with us at AirVenture 2005.  We'll be in Hangar A, folks!

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

"Thunderstorm at Smiley Creek"
Steve Durtschi
of Centerville, Utah makes an
annual excursion to Smiley Creek, Idaho with some
of his pilot friends.  This year, Steve and company were
treated to some spectacular natural scenery in the wake
of an afternoon thunderstorm.  Once again, Mother Nature
takes home another AVweb baseball cap.
(Not to worry, Steve we're sending you one, too.)
