The team here at World Airport Codes are obviously well into our travel, especially planes and airports, but we also enjoy good flying films too.
So I thought it would be fun to see what we, as a company, thought were the best aviation films ever. The only condition is that the film has to revolve around a plane, airport or flight. Also mentioned are one or two films that we didn’t think much of.
This film about racing planes, a spin-off from the Cars franchise, is probably mostly favoured amongst our younger enthusiasts out there. Although Planes was not officially published by Pixar studio it was co-written and directed by the some of the same team who were involved. The story revolves around the tale of Dusty Crophopper, a cropduster plane who really dreams of becoming a race plane.
Although Planes was quite harshly reviewed on various review sites, I don’t feel it was that bad. The animations were nice and the children are sure to enjoy it.
They’ve also recently been working on a sequel ‘Planes: Fire & Rescue’ which is due for launch later this year, July 2014. Here’s a trailer for the upcoming release:
