Picture of the Week: AVweb’s Flying Photography Showcase


Submit a Photo |Rules |Tips |Questions |Past Winners

Each week, we go through dozens (and sometimes hundreds) of reader-submitted photos and pick the very best to share with you on Thursday mornings. The top photos are featured on AVweb‘s home page, and one photo that stands above the others is awarded an AVweb baseball cap as our “Picture of the Week.” Want to see your photo on AVweb.com? Click here to submit it to our weekly contest.


Great pics continue to trickle in from all across the globe, and (as always) “Picture of the Week” gives us an opportunity to show you what your fellow AVweb readers have been up to.

Hangin’ Out with a Chinook

Hayden Bryant of Fort Smith, Arkansas recently spent some time chatting with the “unexpected visitor” who dropped in to re-fuel. The Chinook crew was “very friendly,” writes Hayden, showing off their ride and making small talk before departing on their next mission. Hayden tells us, “This made our day!”

Seminole in Motion (And at Rest)

Chris Buckler of Atlanta, Georgia made good use of a long expoure at a flight school he attended a while back in Eastman, Georgia. Behind the stationary Piper Seminole is another, similar Piper taxiing onto the ramp.

“Helicopter pilots always take time for a photo op,” writes Victor Pallotto of Passaic, New Jersey. Good thing, too – helps our readers keep the picture supply flowing to AVweb HQ!

(Yep, that was another of our not-so-subtle hints.)

“Daddy, Look – Another Canard!”

Drew Chaplin of Springvale, Victoria (Australia) made the trip to Australia’s first annual Canard Fly-In in Mangalore and sent us a couple of nice pics. This one (of course) was our fave.

(Maybe it’s because we live on the other side of the globe and never get to go to any of this cool stuff – but over the last few months, we’ve noticed that Australia has some rocking airplane gatherings. Just sayin’ … .)

On Short Approach to KTRK

Terry J. Wallace of Sacramento, California makes his final approach as our weekly edition of “POTW” draws to a close.

If you still have the yen for more flying photos, but sure to check out the bonus pics on AVweb‘s home page. Look for our slideshow of reader photos about 1/3 of the way down the page.

And don’t forget to submit your own photos, O.K.?

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 or send us an e-mail.
