Beats being stripped of your life or 1-2 extremities from a crash.

Good. Flying or driving is a big responsibility.

Maybe I just live too far out in the sticks, but this story reminded me of an occasion a few months ago when I was driving down a road in my truck and found myself at eyeball level with a low-and-slow flyer.

No big deal.

He** of an efficient way to check fences, though. I’ll have to check into that.

Catch-22, with disastrous results . . .

He was just “high-fiving” the car. Good pilot. I grew up in Ag country, crop dusters routinely went under telephone lines to start their passes. One of the biggest problems they had back then was the children of the seasonal migrant workers “chucking spears” at him when he started the passes.

I knew an old spray pilot. He said sometimes you had to go through the wires and they would pop and shake the plane. But when he hooked the old copper telegraph lines by the railroad, he would feel the plane slow and get heavy and eventually settle down onto the ground. He would climb out and see a quarter mile of copper wire stretched out and holding him.
