Crashed airplane on the side of the road.

Surprised that this still stands (after countless subsequent farming crises). And it's even been spruced up with silver paint and a more official sign.

A Say Cheese Moment: Ellyn Collier looking aghast at a "victim" (daddy, a.k.a. John Collier) of the Agricultural Crash, Norway, Illinois, circa 2002.

Agricultural Crash Monument

There is a roadside airplane along, I believe, route 71 in Illinois. It is dedicated to all the failed farmers, as I recall. It is a strange sight in the middle of nowhere amidst a bunch of cornfields.
