Air Tractor 402B crop duster spraying a field of wheat. Pilot is doing this for a job everyday for the past 30 years and more. Aircraft has a turbo prop Pratt & Whitney PT6A engine. The same engine as in a Air Tractor AT-802 but just a a much lower power setting. This was this pilot's last season before retiring as a crop duster pilot at the age of 70. Aerial application is commonly used when crops can be damaged by agricultural machinery. Low flying is an everyday occurrence for an ag pilot.

The New Zealand agriculture industry relies heavily on the aerial application of fertilisers and other sprays. This video shows the skills of one of New Zealand's top ag pilots, John Bargh, as seen at the Classic Fighters 2005 airshow in Blenheim. The Air Tractor AT-400 is a family of agricultural aircraft that first flew in the United States on September 1979. Type certification was awarded to Air Tractor in April 1980. Of low-wing monoplane taildragger configuration, they carry a chemical hopper between the engine firewall and the cockpit.

Song: These Days by Powderfinger Filmed by the boys at Jones Air, Australia. A great video showing what it's really like flying these planes (AT 602, AT 802 single and double cabs, and Thrushes). The AT 802 are have over 1350HP, and are currently the largest Ag Plane you can get, however a 1002 is in development! Ag spraying has one of the highest fatalaty rates of all professions. Keep a close eye out for the number of powerlines and other obstacles these guys have to negotiate, just to get good coverage. Next time ya see an ag pilot, pat him on the back. http://www.jonesair.com.au
