    (If you've cleaned it up or composited it in PhotoShop, let us know.)
    What sort of camera did you use?
    Where did you shoot the photo?

    A quick note for submitters: If you've got several photos that you feel are "POTW" material, your best bet is to submit them one-a-week! That gives your photos a greater chance of seeing print on AVweb, and it makes the selection process a little easier on us, too. ;)

    A Reminder About Copyrights:
    Please take a moment to consider the source of your image before submitting to our "Picture of the Week" contest. If you did not take the photo yourself, ask yourself if you are indeed authorized to release publication rights to AVweb. If you're uncertain, consult the POTW Rules or send us an e-mail.

    I have read and agree to the rules that apply to POTW submissions. I certify that I am the photographer of this image or have express permission from the copyright holder to release publication rights to AVweb as provided in Rule #2.

  1. The mystery aircraft is one of 27 QU-22B, converted Beech 36 Bonanzas, that were used during the Vietnam war. Based on what can be seen of the USAF serial number, I assume this is 70-1545, msn EB.24, formerly registered as N57895.

  2. Good eye, AGP, you are correct! The aircraft is indeed a Beech QU22B , a USAF Surveillance aircraft from the Vietnam era. I was there but we had F-100C’s. This particular aircraft resided at the Burgard Vocational High School Flight Hangar in Buffalo, NY where it was used as part of the Aviation and Airframe and Powerplant curriculum. My brother taught there for a number of years. The QU22B was acquired by my friend when Burgard no longer needed it. TC
