Why I didn't think of just doing an N number search last night, I don't know...Yep an Air Tractor AT-802. The registration shows a PT-6A engine, good call! I also noticed it has a restricted registration. Not unusual for an Air Tractor.

Restricted allows it to be used for specific things. I suspect, based on lack of what the Feds call "approved data" on the engine installation, the restrcited category allows it to be operated as a fire bomber or a duster.
 
Unfortunately the last 2 pix don't work for me... What are they? The 2nd aircraft pic looks very cool to me, what type of plane is that? It has very ellegant shape!
 
One is a Skycrane helicopter, the others are an airtractor and a LLama Helicopter used for firecrew evacuation and fire spotting.
