An Air Tractor AT-301 from south Texas has gone Hollywood as part of a big promotional effort surrounding the release of Disney's "Planes" animated comedy adventure movie.
The AT-301 airplane, owned by veteran ag pilot Rusty Lindeman, has undergone a star makeover in the form of a turbine engine conversion to an Air Tractor model AT-400A, along with a fresh new paint scheme so that it now resembles the movie's hero, a crop duster named Dusty.

Here is another Air Tractor:
The AT-502B has a big 500-gallon payload. Generous 52-ft. wingspan allows wider swaths. Boost tabs for light aileron response and air conditioning are standard on the AT-502B.
