    Awesome! You did a fabulous job capturing the duster over the fencing.

      Thanks, Ida! I’d never been this close before.

    Crop duster pilots are SO talented! Not to mention courageous! I’ve seen them going under power lines…

      I do believe this one was going under lines. Very scary and impressive!

    Sometimes they fly so low and just barely pull up in time to miss trees or a power line that it scares me to watch them.

      It really is amazing to see how skilled they are, not only flying but running the spray too!

    Great photos. It reminds me of when my husband and i were stationed at Minot AFB in North Dakota. We could see the crop duster the other side of the HWY from where our base house was.

      They are amazing to see!

    Fantastic how low they can fly.

    • Teresa August 14, 2015 at 12:38 pm #

      It’s scary how close to the ground and wires and everything else they get.

    You need to be a bit of a dare-devil to fly a cropduster. I do greatly admire their skill.

    • Teresa August 14, 2015 at 12:38 pm #

      Very skilled. I am extremely impressed, and I wouldn’t want to do it!

    Impressive! I love how the water trails.

      It’s fungicide/insecticide that they apply with the planes.
