2002 Aviation Art Contest Winners

With more than 400 high quality entries in the 2002 International Aviation Art Contest, the judges admitted it was not an easy task to pick the winners.

With the theme of “Silent Flight” most of the entries depicted balloon and sailplanes, but the impact of the events of Sept. 11 was evident in the patriotic motifs that colored many of the paintings submitted.

The winners are:
