He got balls... and big ones at that, Pilot is 65 years old(young). He was spraying 3 fields that was joined in a row, almost 3.5km of strait lines.

Spray went where it should, down into the crops.
If you look at his gps... nice evely coloured patterns. no missed rows
Thnx on the crops, hope it yields as it looks:D

there are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but no old bold pilots. what my cousin always said with 45 years of airspraying under his belt, not many better, had to put two planes in the stubble, one due to mechanical issues with the engine, and the other one a tear in the wing.

How wide is the boom a spray plane?
I'm pretty sure they can get to the wingspan of like 140ft across. (Might be mistaken).

Actually heard a story of one guy from Canada who had bought one in Europe and filled the tank with fuel and flew back to Canada (with a few stops to refuel of course). Sounds crazier than how low this guy was spraying.
