Head Down, Flying Fast

Richard Rice stopped our hearts for a second with this dramatic shot of skydiver Jennifer Jennings (on her first jump) and instructor Larry Portman.  "A perfect view of a perfect day!" writes Larry, who submitted the photo for consideration.

Congrats, Larry – watch your mailbox for an official AVweb baseball cap, because your photo is this week’s "Picture of the Week"!

Time for Skis!

Doug Morley of Minett, Ontario (Canada) writes, "I walk my dog Neko every day here in Muskoka. The boats are put away, but here is my neighbor’s 1945 Piper Cub, ready to go as usual. The lake won’t freeze for another month, so there is lots of time left for this old bird."

Nice Camouflage

John Breitinger of Minneapolis, Minnesota was returning from a long cross-country when he peeked into a hangar and saw this shot just begging to be taken.  John "thought it pretty well captured the best of summer at the airport," and we couldn’t agree more.
