Larry the Cable Guy,

Brad Garrett's 6th Disney film after A Bug's Life (1998), Finding Nemo (2003), Tarzan 2 (2005), Ratatouille (2007), and Planes (2013). See more »
In the movie, the red and green navigation lights are visible from aircraft in positions where they would not be visible in real life. The red light would be visible only through an arc of 110 degrees from straight ahead to port. The green light would be visible only through an arc of 110 degrees from straight ahead to starboard. This means that you would only see both read and green navigation lights if you were looking head on to the aircraft and would see neither red nor green if within an arc of 140 degrees centred on straight behind (70 degrees either side).

Took my 5 year old to see this fully knowing the franchise is worn out after having seen the disappointing Cars 2 and the first Planes. The plot is more interesting here as it plays out like an 80 minute episode of Rescue Heroes.
The animation is fantastic as you would expect. Having animated planes allows for more panoramic views of the woodlands and fires.
Sounds like kids were bored during the sad parts. The story didn't really need this as it's all predictable. You knew Rusty would defeat the odds to save the day in the end. Dane Cook voiced Rusty similar to Owen Wilson's Lightning McQueen, very down to earth without being over the top.
There is certainly nothing groundbreaking here but the action scenes were good enough for my son to say he liked it (which is all that really counts!).
