Yea... Oh, Shelby.

Um... I don't know.

Dusty, you're not built to race.

You're built to dust crops.

Do you know what will happen

if you push it too far?

Wing flutter,

metal fatigue, turbine failure.

- (GASPING) Turbine failure?

- Oh, no, I'm going down!

Why didn't I listen to Dottie?

Yeah, why don't you listen to Dottie?

She's the smartest mechanic

in the world!

- Oh, my gosh!

- What?

- The orphanage!


- Not the orphanage!

- Kids, out of the way!


The kids!






Wow! That was vivid and specific.

And exactly why I need you

to come with us to the qualifier.

You're unbelievable.

Oh. Did you hear that? I'm unbelievable.

(SOBBING) The orphans!


Tune in, in two weeks for the start of

the Wings Around the Globe.

You know, I think we've got

a really good shot at this, buddy.

Oh, yeah! Especially

if I finish this book by then.

Oh! I love this show!

The 10 best

air crashes of all time!

Whoa! Oh.

Not good.

How does that happen?


That is not going to buff out.

You know, this might not cover

everything you could run into out there.

- What are you getting at?

- (STAMMERS) I don't know.

I'm just wondering if maybe

we need, uh, some help.

Help? From who?

Oh, well, like the Skipper.

That old Corsair

down at the end of the runway?

- Sure, he's a war hero.

- He's an old crankshaft.

My buddy, Sparky, says the Skipper

was a legendary

flight instructor in the navy.

That's right. He knows stuff.

He's been grounded for decades.

Why would I want to be coached

by a plane who doesn't even fly?

At least he's a plane.

The number one crash

of all time...

Oh, man!
