Thought you were talking about farting as you walk through a room your wife is in.

Was curious how you captured it on camera, but you meant actual crop dusting.

I've seen a plane just like that dusting crops between Midland and Garden City. I always thought that job would be a lot of fun.

Those guys fly like they have a death wish. Amazes me how they can handle those planes.

Just wait until they go over the top of your truck with inches to spare flush

They are talented at what they do

Had one last week come out from behind a line of trees about 50 yards in front of me at about 40 feet of the ground. I nearly pooded my britches!!!

Looks like Hamp Byler's machine...he IS a daredevil but good at what he does! He's got a lot of good stories to tell.

My sister and I were driving down to Waco from Fort Worth to pick up some antique furniture for her. I spotted a crop duster flying from west to east so it was on her (the passenger) side.The timing was perfect I either slowed down or sped up so the plane would be right over us when he pulled up to go across the highway. My sister actually unhooked her seat was nearly sitting in my lap trying to get away from the plane. She honestly thought that the plane and my truck were going to be one.

It is one of those stories that you had to be there and see the fear in her eyes when she thought we were going to crash with the plane that makes it a very funny story. Plus it was at my older sisters expense.
