Ag Plane working a cotton field

I have a couple of irons in the fire, including reading up on post-fire recovery for the 2013 Rim Fire (California) and the 2015 Soda Fire (Idaho/Oregon). In addition, I had some house chores to do in anticipation of a snow storm this coming weekend, including buying groceries. Yes, I really was out of food and wanted to beat the milk-bread rush. Actually, I only bought one loaf of bread.

So I leave you with a nice 9 minute video of an ag planing working a cotton field. You will see the pilot doing some nifty flying to avoid some utility lines. Power lines are among the obstacles that pose hazards to ag pilots.
