Disney biplane movie
10 June 2005 | by lightninboySee all my reviews

Disney biplane movie. Three is third generation. Two is second generation. Two takes Three to stay at Three's grandfather's farm in the California wine country while Two goes to Europe or somewhere. Three doesn't feel at home on the farm at first. A goose picks on him. Three starts up a Caterpillar and gets into trouble with it. But Three discovers that Grandpa has an old biplane. Grandpa used to be an ace pilot. Three and Grandpa can talk about aviation, and Three feels more at home. Three talks Grandpa into flying the old plane again. Grandpa and his farming cohort get it to flying, but the engine goes bad. Two comes back to get Three, driving a Volkswagen Beetle. Grandpa isn't allowed to take Three up in the plane because Two thinks it would be too dangerous, and he needs an engine from somewhere anyway. Do you think that Grandpa could manage to take Three for a flight before he has to leave?
