    #AvGeek Photo Challenge for April

    Our friend @airport_girl on girl has started up an aviation photography challenge for the month of April, seen here... http://networkedblogs.com/vebk3

    Regardless of whether or not you're on Twitter, I thought it would be great to do here as well. Quite simply, you post a photo of yours for each category in this thread, one each day as directed. Aside from what we enjoy, we will link to your shots on Twitter to show them around to everyone!

    I want you all to have a heads-up so you can fill any gaps in case there are pics you don't have yet. Here's the list:

    #Avgeek Photo Challenge Calendar:

    your favorite airline

    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Being nostaglic, I liked the old carriers (TWA, Pan Am, Eastern, etc.) that made aviation what it is today. Having traveled within the states, my vote is for Virgin America as a favorite airline (no complaints from me).

    While people may laugh, I have this problem with airlines that I love being bought and merged :(

    My all time favorite and hometown airline, America West, will always be my favorite however (yes, this photo DOES count)

    Red face #Avgeek Challenge - Day 1

    I'm the creator of the #AvGeek Photo Challenge and I am late to posting my photos to this forum! For shame.

    Day 1 - One of my #Favorite #Airlines


    Day 2 - #Fixed #Wing Antonov 124


    And, the cheat sheet for a schedule of each days photo content:


    If you're on Twitter or Instragram and photo sharing for this challenge, use the hashtag "#avgeekphoto" and feel free to copy me with a cc: @airport_girl!

    Happy snapping and flying, photogs!
