Where did you watch this movie?

This Disney's animated action-packed comedic adventure stars Dusty - a big-hearted, fast-flying crop duster, who dreams of competing in the most exhilarating around-the-world air race in history. There's only a couple of not-so-small problems - Dusty is not exactly built for racing and he also happens to be afraid of heights. Despite his fear and with encouragement from his mentor, a naval aviator named Skipper, Dusty narrowly qualifies for the big competition. Dusty's sportsmanship and speed begin to rattle the defending champ of the race circuit, Ripslinger, who will stop at nothing to see Dusty fail. When disaster strikes during the climax of the final race, Dusty's courage is put to the ultimate test. With the support of friends old and new, Dusty reaches heights he never dreamed possible.

The pain scheme on Skipper is similar to the one used by the original "Jolly Roger" VF-17 squadron in the World War 2.

Air Tractor AT-402 powered by a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-15AG at 680 horsepower is the base on which Dusty was created.

Skipper is the recreation of a Chance Vought F4U Corsair.

The PT-17 Stearman biplane is the inspiration on which Leadbottom is built on.

De Havilland Dh.88 Comet is named Bulldog in this film.

El Chupacabra is to represent a Gee Bee R1 racer.

The custom-built carbon-fiber plane Ripslinger was built to resemble a Messerschmitt Bf-109.

Ned and Zed are the Extra 300s with different-shaped cockpit window.

LearAvia Lear fan (fuselage), F-117 (the V-tail), Williams V-Jet II (cockpit windows), and Cessna 402 (the wing-mounted turboprop engines) is the combination out of which the fictional aircraft Rochelle is made up of.

Dusty was to be played by Jon Cryer but dropped out during production.
