Roger hears the biplane circling back over the cornfield. The plane begins to lay down a stream of pesticide, chemicals.
Thornhill ducks, and begins choking on the white, powdery haze. From the cornfield, he spots a tandem oil truck headed south on the highway. The biplane circles overhead for another run.
Roger runs out to the middle of the highway, waving his arms. The Freightliner truck honks its horn several times. Thornhill stands his ground in the truck’s path. The front of the tandem truck looms closer. Thornhill falls to the ground, between the front wheels of the oil truck.
The biplane, too fast and low to maneuver, slams into the second oil trailer, bursting into flames. The tail number N45091 is visible along the fuselage.
