For thousands of Bethpage Air Show attendees, the movie will come to life with Dusty’s flying performance. Dusty will show off his talents, communicate with the crowd, and be accompanied by an exclusive and uplifting Disney musical score. Following Dusty’s debut performance at the Bethpage Air Show, Dusty will appear at select air shows across the country.

Disney's Planes in Theater Aug. 9The owner and pilot of the aircraft tapped to play the role of Dusty in the air show performances is Texas-based aerial applicator Rusty Lindeman, who customized one of his own Air Tractor AT-301 airplanes to match Dusty’s paint scheme and features. Manufactured in Olney, Texas, Air Tractor aircraft are used for agricultural spraying, seeding and fertilizing, plus forestry protection, fire fighting and more in the U.S. and more than 30 countries around the world.

“We’re happy to help bring Dusty to life for the performances and hope that the audience will have fun and learn a bit more about the importance of aerial application in modern agriculture,” said Air Tractor’s Kristin Edwards.
 
In addition, a colorful interactive display at the Bethpage Air Show that will be loaded with activities. The display, which is a great attraction for children and adults alike, will feature stickers, tattoos, coloring sheets, and more featuring all of the film's characters.

“Disney’s 'Planes’ is a great underdog story, said director and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall. “It has a lot of heart and a message we can all use: If we can believe in ourselves, step out of our comfort zones and get past whatever fear is holding us back, we’d be surprised with the results. And that’s exactly what happens to Dusty in this movie. He’s
a crop duster who’s never flown above 1,000 feet, but he dreams of being the fastest air racer in the world. He has a lot of obstacles to overcome and needs to dig pretty deep to find the courage to become more than he was built for.”
 
Added Linda Armyn, senior vice president of Bethpage Federal Credit Union, “The Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach is a wonderful family event and we are absolutely thrilled to be a part of the ultimate family experience with this very special appearance of Dusty from Disney’s 'Planes.’ We invite those of all ages to join us for this most unique event.”
