EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013: Cropdusters!

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo AirVenture Oshkosh 2013 featured two prominent agricultural aircraft: the Air Tractor AT-502B with P&W Canada PT6A-34AG engine and a Thrush S2R-H80 with GE H80-100 engine (also on display in front of the GE exhibit).  The Air Tractor was similar to the AT-301 model used to represent "Dusty" from the movie Planes, and at times they were both static display together.  The Thrush flew in the airshows, including a full hopper drop. Here are some views of both aircraft:
