I almost got a job at air Tractor in Olney Texas about 11 years ago.. I was laid off in my govt contract and they were working on hiring me civil service, but I got tired of the bureaucracy and tried to work at Air Tractor, where they made crop dusters and even some military type planes.. Olney is 60 miles away and they had their own strip, so my plan was to get my certification, and borrow a plane to get to and from work every day.. there is a small strip about two miles from my house..

But, the govt got it together when they found out I was gonna get hired at Air Tractor.. I often wonder how life would have been different had I gone to work for them.. I'd definitely have my pilot's certification, that's for sure..
