Judge Davis makes a few minor appearances in the film Planes. His first appearance is at the qualifier of the Wings Around the Globe rally. He also reappears at the start of the WATG rally by saying to the racers, "Start your engines!"
Judge Davis is painted gray, black and red.
Judge Davis' design is based upon "Ina: The Macon Belle", a P-51C Mustang flown by Lt Col Lee Archer of the 332nd Fighter Group (Tuskegee Airmen, also called the "Red Tails") during World War II. In a photo in the gallery below, you can see a side-by-side comparison of Judge Davis and "Ina: The Macon Belle".
"Though they haven't seen each other in years, Judge Davis is actually an old friend of Skipper Riley's. They met back in basic flight school, where they were both instructors. When it came time to deploy, Skipper was sent west to the Pacific, while Davis went east to Europe. Davis became the commander of the famed Red Tail Squadron, which never lost a bomber on their escort missions. Now retired, Judge Davis is the top official in all of air racing."
