Crop duster...


I wonder if all crop dusters are yellow...I have only seen three or four, but they have all been yellow.

Ours are mostly white, not yellow. The pilots are amazing to watch, aren't they? They have to be so skilled in their work, and I think they need to be a little crazy as well :)

These are wonderful pictures! I think the ones I have seen are yellow, too. Maybe it is some kind of rule, so they can be recognized.

Haven't seen any of those for years, not sure if that's because of tighter safety restrictions or tighter economic margins.

….banned since 2009 on public health grounds apparently.

As yellow is in my top three colours, I'll accept that! YAM xx

I don't think I've ever seen any crop dusters around here so no clue what color their planes are. Nice shots of this one

That, now, is something I must look up on Google...now that you mention it.

Wow, awesome shots of the crop duster. Take care, enjoy your day!

I don't think we have crop dusters here. Makes the job so much easier.

Steven said...

Great capture of these aerial moves! The only crop dusters we have around here are those who silently leave behind bouts of flatulence. :-)

Judy said...

I've only seen a few and I'm thinking they were white. I'll have to really pay attention next time I see one.

Sandra said...

great photos, both of these and maybe the yellow is to make them easy to see, since they fly low... I like both pics

Cool shots.

I have seen red ones at the air shows, but they may have been repainted.

These are fine shots of a crop duster. It's a dangdrous business.

Ruthie said...

I have never seen a crop duster. Nice action shots. Here they have planes that spray the river to cut down on mosquitos.

Now that you mention it, most are yellow, but I have seen some red ones.

Kodak said...

I saw them as a kid but have not seen any in years. Maybe it is due to the metro area where I live.

happyone said...

Have never seen one since we've been here.

CheerfulMonk said...

I've never seen one in real life. :(

I'll be glad when these are no longer used. They are too hard on the bees.

You have me trying to dredge up memories of childhood when I saw crop-dusters a lot. I cannot picture their color, though, just their awesome accuracy in doing the job while avoiding trees in the piney woods region of Mississippi.

don't stand too close - the stuff they spray is dangerous to inhale

ElaineH said...

Great actions shots of the crop duster. I have only seen one and if I remember correctly, it was also yellow.

I saw one last year here in New Zealand and it was silver. Love your captures.
