Little King is an Irish racing plane who competes in the Wings Around the Globe competition.
In Planes, Little King competes as a racer in the Wings Around the Globe. Prior to starting in Dusty Crophopper's first time as a Wings Around the Globe racer, he is chosen by the Racing Sports Network as having the ninth worst air crash, where he hit a pylon and hit the ground facefirst. Little King starts ninth at the first leg of the Wings Around the Globe from the United States to Iceland. During the second leg to Germany, Little King runs eighth, only to be overtaken by Dusty, but he almost immediately gains two places when Bulldog gets blinded by oil and is escorted by Dusty. Due to Ned somehow not crossing the finish line with Zed, Little King finishes in sixth place. In the third leg to India, he gets overtaken by Dusty for tenth. On the way to Nepal, he flies in ninth place. A video of him being passed by Dusty is later uploaded onto FlewTube during the fifth leg to China. Before the final leg from Mexico back to the United States, Little King gives Dusty a flow control valve when the latter is in need of repair. Little King is not visible during the final leg of the race.
Planes: Fire & Rescue
Little King is painted light green, with white clover markings on his sides. He has the number 14 painted inside the white clover markings. His design is a combination of a Extra EA-300's fuselage, and a Cessna 402's cockpit windows and vertical stabilizer.
"Little King used to fly the mail route across the Derrynasaggart Mountains in County Cork, all the way to the border of County Kerry. With so many miles logged zigzagging his way across Ireland, Little King was clearly built to go the distance. Eager to see what was beyond the borders of his homeland, this little eitleán (airplane) entered the world of international racing."
