'Up, Up, and Away' wins April photo contest

Up, Up, and Away

Imagine participating in a church festival that is donating a ride in a hot air balloon. As the fog dissipates, your beautiful balloon ascends quietly into the early morning sky together with a flight of other majestic lighter-than-air vehicles. It's a great snapshot moment on such a lofty occasion, which is exactly what Aaron Stonerock realized when he took the winning picture.

More than 3,000 votes were cast for the five April finalists, but Stonerock's photograph won the most AOPA member votes. Find out how you too can become a contender for cash prizes totaling $9,500, including the grand prize of $1,000. Submit your own general aviation snapshots online for a chance to win in AOPA Pilot's 2007 General Aviation Photography Contest, which runs through September 4, 2007.
