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?


#3

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


#4

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”

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


#8

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…


#9

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


#10

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