August 3, 1921
Crop dusting
LT. JOHN A. MACREADY of the U.S. Army Air
Corps sprays a patch of ground infested
with caterpillars, marking the first use
of pesticides " dusted " over fields by airplane.
His application from a modified
Curtiss JN-6 was successful; however,
the first commercial operations began
in 1924 in Macon, Georgia. The S-1 was
developed by Leland Snow in 1951 and
the Grumman G-164 Ag-Cat began production
in 1957. Aircraft designed for
crop dusting include the Air Tractor
line, Cessna Ag-wagon, Piper Pawnee,
and Thrush models. Helicopters are also
employed. Not really " crop dusting " anymore;
the chemicals are liquid, no longer
dust particles.
1 There is no difference. Airships (and
blimps) were originally called dirigible
balloons or dirigibles. " Dirigible "
originated from the French, diriger,
which means " directable " or " steerable. "
The first airship was built and flown by
Frenchman Henri Giffard in 1852. It was
a 143-foot-long, cigar-shaped, gas-filled
bag powered by a 3-horsepower steam
engine that cruised at 5 mph.
2 True with respect to the Seneca and
false with respect to the Skyhawk. The
Cessna Seneca was the military version
of Cessna's CH-1B helicopter. The
civilian version was called the Skyhook.
3 C. It was widely reported that during
the Tulsa Race Massacre of May 31 and
June 1, 1921, white pilots flying Curtiss
JN-4 Jennys dropped explosives and/or
incendiary devices on the residents of
the Greenwood District of Tulsa, one of
the then-most prominent concentrations
of African American businesses in the
United States.
4 Canada.
5 For the Japanese, saving space
was not as important as keeping the
Zero light and nimble. An airplane with
large folding wings pays the price by
requiring additional structure, weight,
and complexity.

AOPA's Flexible Aviation Loan can be put
to work right now to get you on your way as
a better trained, more proficient pilot.
6 An outside loop of global proportion.
(Think about it.)
7 True. At least one Junkers Ju.287
was test flown with others under
construction near war's end. It was fast
enough to avoid interception by Allied
fighters, and its unusual wings had
significant forward sweep.
8 C. A Douglas DC-8-43 reached Mach
1.012 while in a controlled dive through
41,000 feet maintaining supersonic
flight for 16 seconds during a test flight
over Edwards AFB on August 21, 1961.
