Planes follows Dusty Crophopper (voiced by Dane Cook), a big-hearted, speed-loving crop duster who dreams of competing in the toughest and most exhilarating around-the-world air race in history. There are only a couple of not-so-small problems - Dusty is not exactly built for racing, and he is afraid of heights!Despite his fear, and with coaching from Skipper, a naval aviator, Dusty narrowly qualifies for the big competition. But his sportsmanship and speed quickly rattles the defending champ of the race circuit, Ripslinger, who will stop at nothing to see Dusty fail. When disaster strikes during the climax of the final race, Dusty?s courage is put to the ultimate test. With the support of friends old and new, Dusty reaches heights he never dreamed possible and in the process, gives a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
