Times change and this job has hopefully been eliminated with GPS. Back in the late 70's I lived in a SE.Missouri town. My girlfriend's brother was a "Flagman" for a crop duster. I'll call him Bob (not his real name). Bob made $5.00 an hour to flag for a crop duster. He wore white pants, long sleeved white shirt, and a large white hat, and a bandana on his face. He had to carry a long pole (about 20') with a big white flag on the top. On a cotton field, the plane could spray about 20 rows. Bob would stand at 10 rows (dead center of the spray pass) and wave the flag frantically. The pilot would line up with the row Bob was in and begin to spray. Bob would then run down 20 more rows and wait for the pass. When the plane was comming AT him, he had time to almost get out of the way. On the return pass, he didn't stand a chance. I have no idea what happened to him because I only lived there for a couple years but I figure he didn't have much of a retirement plan. I know that he wasn't the only one and would like to hear about someone you know that did this. Also, feel free to post about any other "Different" jobs.
