Incident occurred February 14, 2015 at Monticello Municipal Airport/Ellis Field (KLLQ), Monticello, Arkansas

Saturday afternoon, around 3 pm, an agricultural plane  (cropduster) and a privately owned plane are taking off/leaving at the same time at Ellis Field.

There was no contact, and no one was injured, as a potential collision was avoided.

However, the crop-duster, in his effort to avoid a mishap, came to a stop in the muddy field at the north end of the runway.

With the assistance of a couple of bystanders, who helped push the plane back to the paved surface, the calm pilot resumed his planned schedule for the rest of the day.
