Watch 'Planes' and raise cash for the RFDS
It's 85 years since the Royal Flying Doctor Service first took to the air. On Sunday September 29, a Sydney charity screening of anticipated children's film Planes, combined with a kids' fancy dress competition, will mark the occasion.

If you hadn't guessed from the title, Planes has been created by the team behind Cars. It's the story of Dusty, a crop duster whose one dream is to fly in history's most exciting round-the-world race. However, two obstacles stand in his way. He's not exactly designed for competition. And he's terrified of heights.

Plus, the not-so-nice Ripslinger wants nothing more than to see Dusty fail miserably. Will the beleaguered crop duster overcome his deepest fears and rise to the occasion?

The aviation theme made Planes the obvious choice for a RFDS charity event. "Appropriately, we have chosen an aviation adventure with a plane as the hero and, in keeping with that theme, we have invited along an RFDS pilot to do a short introduction before the film," comments Brendon Smyth, General Manager, Marketing and Fundraising at RFDS South East. "It's a Sunday morning, it's in the middle of the school holidays and we invite all kids and their parents to join us for this special screening. With three kids under ten years old, I know where I'll be."

Children are being asked to turn up dressed as their favourite Disney characters. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.

"It's all in aid of a good cause," says Smyth. "The Flying Doctor is a charitable organisation and we rely on donations to help us deliver vital health services to rural and remote areas."
