Aerial Crop Dusting – Australia

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.
