Crop Duster

A few weeks back a crop duster came to my town to spray the crops with some sort of chemical.
My dad and I went and watched it buzz over the fields. It is amazing the amount of acrobatics it takes for them to do this. Sometimes they would come freakishly close to a house while spraying the chemicals, flying straight at it and at the last second turn skyward and do this over and over again until the field was covered. I got lots of pictures and a video of this one as the pilot was doing his job. The video is not working right now but hopefully I will be able to get it to work within the next couple days. This sure beats the heck out of air shows, plus it's free!

It's been quite awhile since I've seen a crop duster; always an exciting, fun-to-watch find.
