Take The #AvGeekPhoto Challenge All April Long

Travelers, airplane geeks and photographers tend to have one thing in common … they shoot a lot of photos.  If you’re a travel photographer or photo avgeek you probably shoot even more photos.   During the month of April, why not put your airplane photos to good use and take part in the #AvGeekPhoto Challenge?


Throughout the month of April, Stephanie Gehman, Harrisburg International Airport’s marketing manager, has come up with a great way to bring AvGeek’s together through photography. Each day this month Stephanie has come up with a new topic for AvGeek’s to tweet a photograph of, using the hashtag #AvGeekPhoto.


In order to participate you need to be on Twitter and use the hashtag #AvGeekPhoto with each photo you post.

So what my entry for today, the first day of the #AvGeekPhoto challenge, “your favorite airline“? I chose a photo I shot of a Delta Airlines Boeing 767-432/ER on short final into New York’s JFK International Airport, over Terminal 3, formerly Pan Am’s Worldport. As a kid I grew up loving Pan Am’s Worldport and I grew up flying on Delta Air Lines, the first airline I ever flew on at just about 8 months old.  This photo shows two of my first loves of airlines.


My photo submission is below. I hope to see your submissions tweeted daily to #AvGeekPhoto … and be sure to drop @airport_girl a Tweet !


Happy Flying!





PS: If you don’t know what AvGeek means … it is short for Aviation Geek
