Dusty Crophopper learns he may never race again (after his gearbox is on the verge of breaking down if he goes too fast) and he decides to train as an aerial firefighter at Piston Peak Nation Park so his home town airport in Propwash Junction can meet safety requirements (if there is a fire) and be reopened.   He is trained by the tough Blade Ranger, a helicopter who used to act on the show CHoPs.  It is your standard Disney family animated fare about working together, looking beyond for another job when the one you wanted to do might not be possible anymore, and dealing with morality.  Then you have the cliché park superintendent (Cad) who is more interested in his new restored lodge than making sure the Piston Peak aerial firefighters have all of the resources to their job.  It is very cliché, but it is enjoyable enough for one viewing.



Exclusive animated short- VITAMINAMULCH: AIR SPECTACULAR which is an entertaining five minute short


WELCOME TO PISTON PEAK! Is a brief three minute mockumentary promo short on Piston Peak National Park

AIR ATTACK: FIREFIGHTERS FROM THE SKY- a behind-the-scenes look at the real aerial firefighters and smokejumpers that inspired the research for PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE


CHoPs TV Promo

Deleted scenes in various stages with filmmaker intros

A couple of brief promos on the new characters in the sequel who are part of the Piston Peak aerial firefighting crew and the dating promo is the funniest one of the two (while two more are unfortunately available (Blade Ranger and Piston Peak) as digital only content).

“Still I Fly” music video by Spencer Lee which is a 90 minute promo for the song


The movie in standard definition on DVD


Also a code to stream and download a Digital HD copy of the movie for TV, Computer, tablet, and Smartphone


FINAL ANALYSIS: PLANES; FIRE & RESCUE is entertaining enough for one view and then you can forget some of the plot and grown at some of the absurd clichés in the plot.
