This Colorado rancher plowed a mile-wide Trump sign you can see from the skies


Doug Koehn supports President Trump. And he wants everyone flying in and out of Denver International Airport to know it.

So Koehn, a rancher, plowed "TRUMP" into his field in eastern Colorado. Each letter is 800 feet wide and about 800 feet long. That's nearly a mile for the whole name before factoring in spaces between letters.

It's so big that it's hard to read except from above. Koehn joked to KUSA-TV that he was glad he didn't spell anything wrong.

Here's a look at the Trump tribute.

While some farmers have equipment that can use GPS systems to create precise farm artwork, Koehn said he did it the old-fashioned way. His son stood in the field, and he drove to wherever his son was standing until he'd spelled out the president's name. 

Koehn voted for the first time last year. He said he was "embarrassed" that Hillary Clinton won Colorado. 

If this isn't the biggest Trump sign ever, it probably at least comes close.
