This summer Thrush Aircraft went on a multi-stop tour for the 5-10G aircraft in the United States. 

Thursday, they celebrated the successful tour with a homecoming of the aircraft here in Albany. The plane is used for agricultural aircraft to spray traditional road crops and for fire fighting and other missions.

The mission of the tour was to get pilots in the seat and fly the aircraft at their location in their heat and in their altitude.

"It was great feedback from the airplane to see people fly. The feedback we received and the wonderful comments they have on this aircraft. It's a true testament from the employees that we have here at the factory of the quality aircraft that we build," said Vice President Eric Rojek.

The cross country tour lasted from June to today. They have already delivered over 70 aircraft working in over eleven countries.
