Dusty, star of 'Disney’s Planes,' at Bethpage Air Show
It's the 10th anniversary of the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach this weekend, and there's a special addition to the lineup kids won't want to miss.
Dusty, star of "Disney's Planes," which is due in theaters on Aug. 9, will make an appearance at the Bethpage Air Show. "Disney's Planes" is a 3-D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a highflying air racer -- but he's not exactly built for racing and he happens to be afraid of heights. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett and Teri Hatcher also voice some of the characters.
Keep your eyes on the sky around 1:25 p.m. at the Bethpage Air Show for Dusty's 10-minute flying performance along with an exclusive Disney musical score. There will also be an interactive display that will include stickers, tattoos and coloring sheets featuring all of the "Disney's Planes" characters.
Texas-based aerial applicator Rusty Lindeman customized one of his own Air Tractor AT-301 airplanes to match Dusty's paint scheme and features to play the role of Dusty in the air show.
The Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach State Park (2400 Ocean Pkwy., Wantagh) is sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and takes place Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. It's free to the public, but there is a $10 parking fee.
