While evaluating my first Leica lens, an Elmar 50/3.5 from 1946, I came across 
this Air Tractor company-owned Sky Truck airplane which appeared to be fitted 
out with flight test gear in the rear cockpit.  Developed from a large 
agricultural aircraft, the AT-802U has been used for firefighting and for close 
air support in developing countries.  It is a BIG airplane.

I thought of this one when Chris Barker commented about airplanes with long 
noses.  This is about as long as they get!
