  • Mississippi Delta Crop Duster pilot

    He's wearing a collectable A-9 WWII helmet with original AN6530 goggles (they alone are worth $250), flying a 450hp Stearman and 'hand propping' it! And making a living in a Stearman w/radial engine (no turbine), dusting, ...rag wing and steel tubing,(no quick remove panels and stainless steel for corrosion control),...no turn-over roll bar or wire cutters on the plane! ...no positive pressure cockpitor respirator, (chok'n on poison)...or even a face shield or rubber gloves while mixing chemicals,...just a guy getting covered in overspray with a old umbrella for spotting (no Crophawk orGPS), on an old dusting airport with Stearman parts scattered about …hard to believe this type of flying still exists. Cool!
