VAN NUYS, CA — Attendees the American Heroes Air Show, taking place on Saturday, June 21 at the Hansen Dam Sports Complex, will have a chance to see some of the exciting elements from Disney’s new ‘Planes: Fire & Rescue.’ The movie will come to life with a colorful interactive display that is loaded with activities.

“We kept the aviation community top of mind as we developed ‘Planes: Fire & Rescue,’ wanting to create authentic, realistic flight,” said director Bobs Gannaway. “We do a lot of research about the aircraft we feature, the speeds they can travel and the maneuvers they can do. We have flight experts and consultants like legendary Chuck Aaron on our team to make sure the end result is both authentic and fun to watch.”
