Air Tractor AT-502, 602 and 802
The weather improved the next day when an AT-802 and 602 departed Springfield, Illinois’ Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport.
As I panned with the bird taking off I realized I might get a lucky view of the two if I timed it right . . . . . . and I did. The other AT, a 602, flown by at Air Tractor dealer based in Antioch, Illinois, followed him into the air.
The nose down attitude was a surprise. He maintained it most of the way over the runway. The last picture appears to show him diving toward the control tower, but he was a long way away and beginning to raise the nose.
Thanks for visiting AeroKnow Museum’s Gallery of Flight.
