Roper is a forklift.
In Planes, Roper is one of the racers' pit crew.
This irascible race official pitty delivers the rules for the North American Wings Around the Globe time trials with a matter-a-fact personality and a wry sense of humor. In fact, Roper never misses an opportunity to offer his own take on the events that unfold. With sly remarks and colorful commentary, Roper is funny but firm in his dealings with the race and the racers.
Roper is painted gray, with a blue cap and white forklift arms. He has a logo on his door.
