LESC Helps With Homeland Security

When Homeland Security needed a crop duster and pilot for a film being put together by the Pentagon, LESC stepped in to help.

Steve Wood was the lucky guy who was in the seat when the decision was made, so he got to play the part of the disgrunted Vietnem Veteran who was hired by a couple of terrorists to spray some "bad stuff" on unsuspecting citizens. The terrorists were played by actors, but real US Customs Agents and Riverside Sherrif Offciers demonstrated how they take down the bad guys. You need to talk to Steve to get the whole story, but Rex Sweetland shot the below video and stills.
