As most of our readership knows, today is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. a national holiday of appreciation and thankfulness.  In that spirit, we'd like to take a quick moment to say "thank you" to all our readers for participating in the "Picture of the Week" contest.  If we could budget for enough hats, we'd send one to everyone who's ever submitted a photo or commented on this feature or just took a moment to let us know how much they enjoy it every week.  It's a bit of work at times, but it remains one of our favorite features, due to the amazing submissions of readers like you.  So before we get started:  Thanks for giving us so many cool photos to look at this year.

Now, on to the weekly photo fun!  Jay Honeck of Iowa City takes the top spot this week and will be receiving an official AVweb baseball cap sometime next week for his efforts.  Remember:  To qualify for a shot at the cap (or a feature spot right here on our "POTW" page), all you have to do is submit your aviation photos.

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

"Blue Angels at Milwaukee Air Show '05"
Jay Honeck
of Iowa City, Iowa wants to write this
photo off as "just a lucky shot, with perfect clouds and lighting!"
We'll agree that the clouds and lighting are perfect and we'll
even go so far as to say there was some luck in getting
the shot but we object the use of the word just.
There's nothing "just" about his amazing photo, Jay
and to prove it, we're making your Blue Angels shot
our Thanksgiving Day "Picture of the Week."
