No lightning photos this week, we promise! Like most everyone, we’ve seen enough storms for a while – so it’s blue skies and easy flying in this installment of “Picture of the Week.” Navah Samra takes home top honors for a photo celebrating 80 years of the RCAF. Your official AVweb baseball cap is already winging its way to the Great North, Navra!

Don’t forget to send us your best aviation photos – we enjoy ’em all, not just the handful that make it onto this page!

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

“Any Questions?”
Robert Tyson of Flower Mound, Texas writes:
“I took this photo in October of 2003 at KROW. This is the
left wing of a MIG-17 owned and operated by George Cambron.
Tragically, both George and the jet were lost in March 2004.
For your sense of humor and love of aviation, thank you, George.”
