When Dusty is talking to Ishani in Nepal and he mentions her 'new propeller' as Sky Slicer Mark 5, made exclusively for the Ripslinger racing team. The propeller is a four bladed prop. None of the Ripslinger entries (Ripslinger, Ned or Zed) are using a four bladed prop. Ripslinger uses two counter rotating two bladed props. Ned and Zed each use a single two bladed prop. See more »
I saw this movie on an airplane once since I figured it would be appropriate. I know that it has some connections to Cars, even if it isn't Pixar. While I heard good things about Cars and bad things about Cars 2, I was wondering how a movie like this would fare. Well, I think that the film was good in the end. It may not be entirely realistic, but it's a cartoon so it really isn't supposed to be. I admit that the whole plot of the movie can be a bit obvious and predictable, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. Planes was a good use of time on that long flight. The subplots may not be what you expect, but that makes them all the more better. I hope that you enjoyed the film like I did.
