Well, this gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “fly-over country!”
A rancher outside Denver wanted to make a HUGE political statement to people flying in and out of the blue state that went from Hillary in 2016, so he did it in the only way he knew how: He carved a mile-long Trump sign into his property.
“The letters are 800 feet wide and approximately 800 feet long,” Koehn said. “A mile-long Trump.”
You can’t really read it from ground level. The first time Koehn saw the whole thing in one frame was when 9NEWS showed up with a drone to see it. …
Koehn says he’s never voted before last year’s election, when he was inspired to cast a ballot for Trump. He tells 9NEWS he’s “embarrassed” that Colorado voted for Hillary Clinton last year and wanted to show that Trump has healthy support in Colorado’s rural Eastern plains.
Surprisingly, the job was completed in only two hours and all it took was his son guiding his tractor, “My son come out and stepped it off and I just drove the tractor to wherever he was standing.”
Check out this local news story that interviews Koehn and shows some amazing aerial views of this incredible sign.
