For this year’s contest, we split the nation into five regions and asked you to send in your favorite images of your airplane in a recreational setting. We received photos from all over the country! Your response demonstrates that the RAF is fulfilling its mission across the nation. 

Again, our judges had difficulty selecting just one winner from each region, finally selecting eight winners.   Patricia Tyler stated, “The quality and composition of the photos submitted were excellent.   It was truly a challenge for all the judges to determine the winners.  We look forward to writing our appreciation on these lovely cards.”

Each winner will receive a package of high-quality greeting cards with their photo on the front and photo credit on the back, with our appreciation. 

Each submission may be used for RAF publicity use, including photo credit. 

Thank you to everyone who participated!
