Up, up, and away: Agricultural pilots take off in Saskatchewan
from Regina Leader-Post
Devan Yaholnitsky straps on his bright yellow helmet, checks a handful of dials and indicators, then powers his Thrush airplane off the end of the short runway at the Yorkton Municipal Airport in Saskatchewan. A few moments later he is soaring over a canola field. He banks hard to the right, then hard to the left, reaching speeds of more than 200 km/h. Then he swoops the white and red aircraft down, a stomach-churning drop to only three or four metres above the golden field, letting loose a misty spray of pesticide.
