This outfit must have been going pretty fast when it hit a brick wall. Somehow it looks kind of squished together, like a cartoon version.

Nice brand new Challenger tractor, 120 horses for $100,000. The bale feeder can be had for $17,000. The mineral feeder is a bargain
at $189.00, considering it is weighted so it always bounces back to the standing position.

Dragging the plane back to where it can become airborne. All in all, it was a very fun day in the little town of Rushville, Nebraska.
The event was well-attended, and hopefully plans are already in the making to have a similar event next year.

Pulling that airplane back down the street reminds me of a couple of airplane in town incidents. We always had a float in the local parade in the town were my uncles airpark was located. One year we decided instead of a small helicopter we would build a float with an airplane on it. All was well until we got to the 4 way stop and realized the stop sign was in the middle of the street. Spectators helped lift the plane over the sign by pulling down on one and lifting the other wing. Never held the parade up at all until we were coming down the next tree lined street. It was plenty narrow compared to the width of the wings. Had to do a bit of repair when we got back to the airport. The next year we put a Jet Ranger helicopter in the parade. Who knew the power lines were so low in town. :shock: I could boar you all with airplane and helicopter in town stories all day but fortunately for you I won't. Thanks for a trip down memory lane Soapweed. I like the idea of having a street fair like that. Hopefully it will be an annual affair.

I recognize that airplane. That's an Air Tractor made in Olney, TX at http://www.airtractor.com/

My mother and father-in-law have both worked there for years, building crop dusters. Good company to do business with and good place to work.

Haymaker, you better come next year. You can take in a pretty good slice of cow country, and probably take home a mule. Rushville is a nice little town, with a great salebarn, and generally agreeable bartenders. A general store that will make you compare to a big-city retailer, only more selection. I went to a funeral there, and still had a lot of fun.
