Most of the crop dusting aircraft I'm used to seeing are old biplanes, Piper Pawnees (though they mostly tow gliders and banners), and the Cessna Ag series. But I noticed this photo in my uncle's Flickr photostream.
Apparently they're using C-130s to spray for Mosquitos!
That's rather impressive. It also feels like it could, just maybe, be construed as typical government overkill. :-) But even so, it goes to show just how damned versatile the C-130 Hercules really is.
