3 Air Tractors crossing the pond.

Just found this interesting. I hope these guys get overtime for this. I’m not a pilot but I think it takes some serious brass buttons to attempt this.


Nice find! That is interesting, all registered to Ekpac China Inc., wonder if they continue on to China?

I’m thinking they probably are. Maybe SMX to PHTO then Midway to wake to japan to china maybe?

Hey, if Dusty CropHopper can make the journey going the other way in the “Wings Around the World” rally, why can’t these guys do it? :laughing:

“planned: 170 kts, Planned: 2,413 sm”

Uuuuuugh… My butt aches just from reading that!!! Wishes of good tailwinds to you Captain!

Interesting how one flew at 16000, second at 19000 and third at 21000.

i’m impressed that they will go that fast – they aren’t exactly built for speed.

At least they don’t need to worry where they are going to put the extra fuel…

According to the picture this one is the highly advanced Arrow 3 version. :laughing:

got them going again only 2 this time.


The 3rd one using this type code “GTWN”. It’s why it’s not showing up on that other type code link.
