Coming to a home entertainment system near you in 2013, the straight-to-DVD flick “Planes” apparently portrays the story of an AirTractor (or Thrush!)-like turboprop trying to compete with jet-powered fighters on carrier decks. Like all good art, the trailer shown below inspires many questions, such as: Is that really a V-tailed EA-6B in the background? Why do you need a catapult to launch an AirTractor? How can a B-2 zip around like that without compromising its structural integrity? And, perhaps most disturbingly of all, why am I questioning the contextual purity of a cartoon?
