As this town's million dollar assault against mother nature's clean-up crew, the gypsy moth, bemoans us ever closer to its D-Day sometime in May, many young winged commanders are retraining for the ultra low altitude maneuvers of that strategic mission. These urban commando'ss must be shown proper handling of the stick whilst carrying heavy loads of swishing liquids within the X-large unsteady tanks fitted on board. This combined with tree branches, poles, wires and antennas, means that certification for these precarious crop dusting sorties over more heavily populated areas requires a special rider's stamp of approval.

It is just such a challenging tutorial that may have put two in area hospitals recently when their chopper went down during training as the vehicle lost its power only ten feet above the ground.
