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.


The embarrassment of riches continues this week, as we share more post-AirVenture photos from our overflowing submission box.

Dominator Gyroplane

Sometimes a little contrast and not much else can make for an unforgettable photo. Doug Gaudette of Xenia, Ohio kicks off the festivities this week with a shot of Ron Awad piloting Scott Biser’s Dominator.

Airport Fire Fighter Training

Timothy J. Gift of Gilbert, Arizona sent us a pair of amazing photos from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s annual Part 139 live burn training. With any luck, this is as close as most of us will ever come to this type of situation … .

New X-Wing Airplane?

Larry Gray of Merrimack, New Hampshire assures us this photo "was not touched up in any way." Sure, we all know what’s going on here – but doesn’t it make you just a teensy bit dizzy looking at the small version?

If you enjoyed these photos as much as we did, remember that there are couple dozen more online at AVweb‘s home page – just look for the "POTW"slideshow in the center column!

Click here to submit your own photos to "POTW."

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.
