While his friends need convincing, Dusty gets the training he needs from Skipper, a veteran fighter, and qualifies for the Wings Across the World race. In the event, Dusty finds competitors who soon learn that there is something special about this underdog as he is tested to his physical and emotional limits. In doing so, Dusty soon finds enemies, and more importantly friends, who are inspired by his dream. In the face of all obstacles, the winner of this air race will be anyone's guess.

OK, this movie was lame for this reason. It's pretty obvious that
Disney just wanted to squeeze as much juice as they could from "Cars",
so they basically make another "Cars" movie, and just make the main
characters into "Planes." Like I just said, very lame-o.
On the positive side, the quality of the animation is very good, and
you I'm sure a lot of the kiddies can't get enough of this stuff, and
I'm sure they will have a lot of cute toys, maybe even a ride from this
movie, but seriously, if you are older than 7, maybe 8, you will be
able to see right through this as just another marketing ploy by
I believe they have a sequel in the works for next year as well, so
gear up for that folks!
