Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Forget lions, tigers, and bears – this week’s “Picture of the Week” contest has helicopters, amphibians, and Cessnas! (Oh, my!) And they’re all set against the spectacular natural backdrop of the setting sun. Despite the common setting, each of this week’s “POTW” entries is from a different region of North America and features a different flying machine. Congratulations to Gary Watson, who walks away with first prize this week. Gary, your Officially Licensed AVweb Collectible Hat is in the mail!

as an S61N CF-MQF helicopter hauls a load of cargo out from Tuktoyaktuk
for Dome Petroleum “on a cold spring day in 1984”
