Before President George H.W. Bush served the country in the White House, he served as an aviator for the Navy during World War II. He was quickly promoted to Lieutenant and had a notable and successful career as a pilot. In honor of President Bush’s illustrious time in the US Navy, the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum will be showing “Planes” to close out the 2015 Summer Film Series on September 25.

Dusty Crophopper is a crop-duster plane who works at a cornfield and practices aerobatic maneuvers in his spare time. This young plane dreams of becoming a racer and soon enlists the help of Skipper Riley, an elderly and reclusive navy war plane, to mentor him. With the help and support of new friends, Dusty is able to persevere and compete amidst the criticism he receives from other planes. Produced by Disney in 2003, “Planes” is rated PG and is 92 minutes long.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy this film under the stars by the presidential pond. Games and free refreshments will begin at 7pm and the movie will start after sundown.
