Riding a plane

Cropduster buzzing the house

I got woken up this morning by a plane buzzing the house. I'm pretty sure it's the same Air Tractor that I've taken pictures of in the past.  He was spraying the corn fields just to the south of us.  I managed to get outside in time to take some video footage.

I'm still hoping to catch him spraying the small field out front.  It requires him to dodge trees and power lines then pull up at the last second to avoid the barn.  I missed it last year, but my roommate assures me it was quite spectacular.

More cropdusters

I only got one shot of this plane.  I didn't realize it when I took the shot that this wasn't the usual Air Tractor that works the area.  This plane is a 1974 Cessna A188B AGtruck.
