Patrick the best part of those airplanes is to see them in action. The way they move those airplanes at low altitude.

I agree. They are fun to watch. While researching this I found out that Agri Pilots have to be commercial rated. I thought that was rather interesting.

They are fast, have great climbing ability, very agile.

Thanks for the comments

Nice image, Patrick...neat to see aircraft working low and slow. I'll bet it's a thrill to fly something like that.

I'm not sure about the tractor but my favorite is the Cessna 170. Its a tail dragger and its a lot of fun for sure. A piper J3 or Supercub is a close second in my book.

Thanks for looking.
