Right, slats and flaps out and he is flying with the Extras, or they with him.
Great shot BTW.
But as a spray platform I question that choice, mostly because I did 10 years fixed-wing spraying back in the 70's.
Basically, an airframe designed to operate in the flight levels at .75 Mach is not really a good spray platform for working below 1000 feet. They do a good job with the DC-10 in the water tanker role for fires, but it would be interesting to see that 727 with atomizers on the trailing edge.
