Breitling(Static AA168) recently ran a photo competition on Facebook that had the theme of capturing the spirit of aviation. Jeremy Hampton from Overland Park, Kansas, won first prize with a picture of a child admiring an aircraft that beat 5,000 other entries. The honor also got him an all-expenses-paid training course for a pilot’s license.

Second-prize winner Tyler Rogoway, from Portland, Oregon, didn’t do too badly either. As a reward for his shot of an airliner he won a flight with the Breitling Jet Team, the largest civilian professional jet display team. The winners were chosen by a panel that included actor and pilot John Travolta, air-to-air photographer Katsuhiko Tokunaga and Yves “Jetman” Rossy.
