"He's back!"
Yellow Bird, Planes

Yellow Bird (spelled Yellowbird in Meet the Planes) is a competitor in the Wings Around the Globe Rally. He is a yellow Extra EA-300 with a black checkered pattern painted on his sides. He has the number 1 painted on his rear tailfin, although he sometimes has the number 17 instead.

History

Yellow Bird is a racing plane from the US, taking part in the WATG Rally as racer #1/17.

In Planes, he sets the fastest time in the qualifier round for the Wings Around the Globe and competes in the rally.

He is then seen in many shots of the racers throughout the movie, including in the pit row at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

He strangely does not appear with the other racers to give Dusty parts, although he is seen saying that Dusty is back after he was rebuilt.

Profiles and statistics

  • Bio
    • "Originally from Wyoming, Yellowbird got involved in racing quite by accident. Immensely proud of his Native American heritage, Yellowbird would travel back and forth between western Wyoming and southeastern Montana to participate in the annual Cheyenne Nation Air Rodeo. It was at one of those rodeos that a Wings Around The Globe racing promoter noticed him and suggested that Yellowbird enter a regional air race. Yellowbird easily won that first race, and the rest is history."[1]

Trivia

  • His racing number is actually different in some parts of the movie. The qualifier leaderboard and Yellow Bird's tent as well as his appearance in the Germany to India leg show his number as 17. In New York and on the leaderboard at the start of the China to Mexico leg, his number is 1.
