Pilots consider safety when spraying


A crop duster flies over Adams Central Road near West
D.L.D. Road Thursday morning.

Watching a plane spray chemicals over a field is a spectacle.

The plane flies low over a field as a spray comes out the back. The plane curves skyward as it flies over a home or roadway before turning around to return for its next loop through the field.

Oftentimes, it's difficult for people to not want to stop and watch the plane as it flies through the air.

"We do understand people are naturally curious," said pilot Dale Rose. "Often families with children or other interested individuals are interested and we can appreciate that but if they can stay a half mile away from the field, we would appreciate it for their safety and ours."
