Trivia

At the beginning of the movie Dusty gives an "autograph" to a British Airways Airbus 380, the largest passenger plane in the world. See more »

Goofs

During the lodge evacuation scene there is a biplane trying to get its engine started so it can take off. The propeller blades on the biplane are obviously pitched in the wrong direction to pull the airplane forward with the engine running and would push it backwards instead. See more »

It's a fun movie
2 August 2014 | by tvfoxholeSee all my reviews

I do not understand why everyone is so down on this movie. The story is original - talking planes fighting forest fires - can't recall that being done before. The animation is top notch. The characters are funny. The movie went really quick....which is a good thing in my mind. There were NO political messages as was the case with the Cars movies. They could have easily spun a global warming message with the fire fighting but didn't go there.

Be sure to sit through the credits to find what happens to the park administrator. This movie is much better than Planes and almost on par with Cars II.
