COLUMBIA — Last week's best images by Missourian photographers included Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving, Columbia Regional Airport's inaugural Orlando flight and Texas A&M's Midnight Yell.

Jaime Henry-White captured this image of the Squadron 21 Hellcats, members of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets, doing chants during the Midnight Yell on Friday in College Station, Texas. The Midnight Yell is a tradition at Texas A&M before every home football game.

In this photo by Bobby Watson, Justin Hull hits his chess clock after moving his piece into position to start his opponent's timer. Hull, president of the Columbia Chess Club, takes on his opponents at Kaldi's Coffee and has learned to play blindfolded.

In this photo by Kile Brewer, a Columbia Regional Airport employee motions in a Delta Airlines flight while a Frontier Airlines flight waits to take off for Orlando. The inaugural Frontier flight to Orlando took off Tuesday, and only two seats weren't filled.

In this photo by Greg Kendall-Ball, Diedre Butler walks past mostly empty shelves at the Wonder/Hostess Bakery Outlet on Business Loop 70 West. Customers searched for bargains Monday, the store's last day of business.
