F-22 Fighter Pilot Drives My Tractor

Sep 30, 2020
254 610 Views

Lance "Dusty" is a real fighter pilot for the U.S. Air Force and just recently switched from flying F-22 Raptors in Alaska to now instructing new pilots in the T-38. But he is a farm boy at heart and no matter how cool his Air Force job is, he'll always love farming the most. Machinery can be dangerous to both humans and animals. Accidents are never wanted but ultimately can never be fully prevented. Even though an engine compartment seems like a safe place to take a nap it can turn deadly real quick. We are sad to see the stray cat harmed but happy minimal damage was done to the combine.
It is such a blessing to be finished with harvest! Praise the Lord for a bountiful harvest!

    • My Father had that happen one time cats would get in there to stay warm against the rad and he fire the car up and make a mess it's sad when it happens so after that he would bang on the hood and then honk the horn before cranking the engine to scare the cat out of there if there was one there.

  • Nice family outing. I cringe every time I hear the new terms 'smoky' or 'not so smoky' in the weather forecasts. I have Dusty's picture in the F-22 with the flag as my screen saver. Nice to see the face behind the visor. The thrill, the pressure to be piloting such an awesome platform. WOW.

  • Dusty, did you have “Bink” as a Sim instructor in the RTU? Run across “Stitch” in Anchorage? Farming is exactly like Flying Fighters, except it’s done in one less dimension, and done with 500-1000 Kts less speed. Oh, and you have to pay for your boo boos in farming.

  • I think Grandpa needs to build a solar heater for the pool ! 4x8' sheet of plywood painted black on a 2x4" frame. Use 1" 100' ft. black plastic flex pipe hooked to slow moving water pump. Piping enclosed with glass. Set it to most sunlight during the day.

  • 6 months of harvest??? We are harvesting 10-11 months a year. 5 days a week for about 6 months or so. Life of a vegetable farmer.

  • I feel like such a city slicker (I don't actually live in or care for the city, but I don't live on a farm like my mother did growing up). "I'm just gonna grab this dead animal carcass casually with my hand and put it in this bucket.".... Ew, no! Respect.

Thanks for you guys it's kind a like trip to Montana all the way from Finland when I come to home from work at night and watch your latest videos. Appreciate your Job! Never been farmer and now just driving trains as locomotive engineer, but you guys make it interesting for us non pros.

  • I have seen the Welker family mention some of their shale land as being pretty much worthless for farming, but I had an idea that might be of interest. If any of your larger shale land areas are very close to a road legal for semi trucks, you could potentially set up a couple truck and trailer parking areas for drivers to bring their trucks to, in order to have a few days time away from the world. Set up an outhouse, water supply, and household electrical power, and quite a few of us might plonk down some greenbacks to have a couple days under the big sky in Montana.

  • Talk of pilots driving combines Its really a thing in Australia We have a labour shortage for harvest guys because of covid and all the commercial pilots are put out of work, so loads of them are getting lined up and retrained as combine drivers Be interesting to see how it goes
