They have been doing alot of aerial spraying around here lately, but when I heard him fly over our house I decided to go take some pics. I love watching these guys!

Just figured I would share. Missed the best one of all... when he was done with that field he flew directly over me, I tried getting that pic but missed him and got a great pic of blue sky! Lol!

And who said I'm not easily amused!

When I was younger I'd work on a farm during the summer. Used to love watching the crop dusters fly! Great pics.

Seen a plane spraying a few years ago, really talented imo, no much wasted time in the air, kinda reminded me of a air race the way he made short turns and back down the fields he would go

My BIL and his family are/were crop dusters for 40 yrs and his father retired a few yrs ago. These guys take pre flight prep seriously but have many crazy stories and close calls ! Love to to fly with them but NOT in their duster lol

Thanks! And yes it does! Probably just another day at the office for him though.

That’s cool!
Definitely! I think they have big kahunas! Have to in order to fly that close to the ground!

Thanks Jim! I still enjoy watching them!

I agree, not much wasted time! But to them time is money! It's a short season.

Thank you! And yes, it's cattle corn lol! Or we call it field corn. But our sweet corn is about 40 yards out our front door!

Yes they are! I'd rather fly on that plane than with the crop dusters! Maybe you could get a free ride if you bring copper pot along and make lunch for em!

I flew around in a duster with a guy that said we couldn't use the radio 45 years ago, figured he didn't want to die anymore than I did. Helps you come in contact with your sphincter muscle. RAY
:emoji_laughing: I think that explains it very well Ray!

Swear I seen that same plane as I went through nodak today
There's 2 or 3 like it flying around here! And 1 helicopter also!

I can only imagine the stories! It would take a special breed to be able to do it!

That they are Justin! Thank you!

Very cool. Funny though, our local sprayer has planes that look exactly like that, color and all. Those guys are amazing to watch. Over and under power lines and just aerial acrobats. Enjoy.

Awesome pictures I really like watching them. A couple years ago got to watch a helicopter spray herbicide next door getting ready to plant pine trees that was a real show. He also had a specially rigged flat bed with tanks of his chemicals that he would land on to refill.
