Skipper is wearing a paint scheme similar to the one used by VF-17, the original "Jolly Roger" squadron in World War 2. VF-17 was originally attached to the USS Bunker Hill (CV-17), which used the Walt Disney character Donald Duck in its official ship's logo. See more »

Planes a wonderful tale of never giving up on your dreams.
Disney takes the Pixar Formula that made Cars and Cars 2. Instead they make it about the planes that inhabit the Cars world. the Story is actually Very simple. Dusty Crophopper is a Crop duster. but he dreams of being a big time racer. His friends tell him he wasn't made to be a racer stick to dusting crops. But he has two friends that believe in him. And when they actually get him ready to qualify for the big race and He to everyone's amazement Does Qualify. Dusty becomes much more then just a dust cropper. He seeks the advice of a old World War II corsair named Skipper who pushes Dusty thru his paces and makes Dusty perfect because of Skipper's intense training. When the race begins Dusty is met with scorn and isn't given much of a chance. The Current Champion ripslinger hates him because Dusty represents all of the planes that have no business racing. but slowly Dusty Makes friends and impresses everyone with his heart and courage.
And not once does he ever give up on his dreams. There is a wonderful story here. But a Better lesson for kids who want to be something and are told no they can't because of whatever reasons.
I took my kids to see it and they loved it. Sure it's a kids movie but it's so well made it can be for adults as well. Never give up on your dreams put the hard work in that's needed to succeed and you too can be a winner.
Some people say it's lazy film making but it isn't. There was a lot of hard work and hard thought that went into this movie and a lot of inspiration. I took a group of five year old boys to see it. Two of them have ADHD and they sat thru this movie and paid attention. That alone should tell you everything you need to know.
