    A crop dusting helicopter crashed just the other day, too. http://www.laprensa.com.ni/2014/08/0...da-helicoptero

    Dusty Crophopper isn't happy.

    A dangerous job anywhere. Too close to the ground, no room whatsoever for recovery.

    My 11 year-old step-son's classmate's father was one of the pilots who died.

    We saw one of the crop-duster planes flying over Leon toward Chinandega that day. A joyful sight. Manned flight sometimes seems a visible miracle here - we go weeks without seeing or hearing a plane or chopper in the skies over Leon. Just birds.

    They use them a lot around Sebaco, only way to apply pesticides to the rice fields when they are flooded.

    We always pass by the crop duster strip next to the Pan Am highway, headed to Esteli.

    Several times I have been flying from MGA to Corn Island and seen them under us spraying the fields East of MGA.
