AVweb readers continue to deliver the goods, even with a day off work and lots of distractions during the Independence Day holiday.  In honor of Fourth of July barbecues and fly-ins, we wanted to make this a holiday-weekend-themed edition of “POTW” — and it almost is, though we just had to squeeze in a photo of the Concorde making its way to NYC.  So microwave the last of your holiday leftovers, pull up a seat and check out these great “POTW” submissions from our readers.  Philip F. Curtiss, an AVweb hat is on the way for your striking photo of Miss Liberty!

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

of Gaylord, Michigan snapped this majestic shot
of the Statue of Liberty recently.  Perfect timing for a reminder that,
even though she’s closed to the public, Lady Liberty is still stunning from the air
