Out the Window



You know you're still living in the country when a crop dusting plane is doing its pivot turns just outside your window. I've been fascinated by crop dusters for decades. They even found a way into my fiction. In Falling Bakward South Dakota sunflower farmers fought off the pterodactyl-like aliens in an Air Tractor AT-503A.
I chose that one because it was a two-seater, which is pretty rare in a crop duster.

I wonder what the second seat is for? Bring a friend to work day? :)

It's billed as an Observer seat. But as I said, it's a pretty rare option for a crop duster.
