B.Williams - It Isn't Always Fun...
Among the hazards confronting the typical agricultural pilot, as the author lightheartedly reflects from many hours of experience. are the proximity of trees to the field to be treated, and the spray that lingers over the field, to be avoided on the next pass.
Typical of the agricultural tail-draggers flown by the author is the Rockwell Sparrow Commander - a design that originated as the Call-Air A-9, and was later built in Mexico by AAMSA, which acquired the design from Rockwell.
Cables across the corner of a field present the agricultural pilot with an ever-present hazard, as these photographs show dramatically.
