"South American Glory" by Thomas J. Kalina Takes First Place

Thomas J. Kalina of Racine, Wisconsin, won the Best of Show award and the top prize of $1,000 in the 2005 EAA Sport Aviation Art Contest. His entry, "South American Glory," depicts a Douglas DC-7B taking off in the early evening light.

Four other category winners took home $250 awards and included Ardell Bourgeois, Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada -- "James Allen Ward, VC" -- Warbirds category; Leon Basler, Bismarck, North Dakota -- "Lifting the Spirit" -- Sport Aviation; M. Randall Mytar, Sherman Oaks, California -- "Fly Fishing" -- Vintage; and Ron Hart, Bend, Oregon -- "Manned Flight" -- Open Bourgeois' entry illustrated a British airman on the wing of an in-flight Vickers Wellington Mk.IC. bomber attempting to douse a wing fire caused by enemy flak. Basler's entry depicted a solitary glider soaring above a canyon.

Mytar's entry was a watercolor showing a man and child fishing while perched on the float of a Piper J-3 Cub.

Hart's entry shows a man "standing" on a large paper airplane as is soars over an open field.
