Aerial application, or what was formally referred to as crop dusting,

involves spraying crops with crop protection products from an agricultural aircraft.” – Wikipedia

Spent a couple days working on a project at the Cleveland Air Service in the Mississippi Delta last week with my good friend and fellow artist Will Jacks. Much more to come, stay tuned.

Lucky enough to get the chance to photograph a crop duster in Belzoni, Mississippi while heading to the Jackson MS Airport. The weather was not looking good so I was surprised to see some out. I just love the sound of their engines, the high pitch hum right before they come into view above the tree tops.

I have a weakness for crop dusters. Crazy? Maybe but true. There’s an art to what they do, a dance in the sky, fascinating.

Iron Maiden’s “Ace’s High” may describe a crop duster in flight perfectly, minus the guns of course.
