This was a movie that in 1990 my kids enjoyed and we saved on VHS. A fun adventure of two boys coming of age with James Whitmore Sr. teaching them how to fly. We saved it on VHS and through the years had more kids who also loved the movie. Well the VHS is worn out and the eldest son is looking for a DVD because he wants his boys to enjoy the tale. We are hoping Disney will release it from the movie vault and reissue it. The Biplane is timeless, Mr. Whitmore is cantankerous and funny. The first half is better than the second half which has less flying and more of a city setting. You can tell there are two different directors with two different styles. But you also get a sense of Mr. Whitmore Jr.'s directing style in the first half and I see it in other shows he's directed, like episodes of NCIS.
