Nearly Touching His Target

This crop spraying plane called the Blue Flame which was being operated by pilot Albert Bueckert appeared northeast of Provost in a green canola crop at 8:45 p.m. on August 2 after lifting off from the airport four miles away. The plane—seen here at a very low altitude skims over the crop as it sprays out an insecticide called Silencer, designed to kill diamondback worms before they continue chewing into the plants and farmer’s profits and later transforming into diamondback gypsy moths. Two other planes from Three Hills, Alberta had also been flying in the area at this time. Bueckert continued spraying until approximately 9:40 p.m. when the light was fading. ©Provost News Photo.
