    This will be a great movie/videogame for the kids and grandkids who love planes and have been flying since birth. The 5-year old knows most models of popular GA planes and a lot of fighters.Looks like Lightning McQueen and mater will have plenty of competition for the entertainment dollar. Can’t wait. The calender is marked for August 9th. Gives us a reason to go to work every day.
