A special plane was on-hand during today's celebration of Air Tractor's 3,000th plane in Olney.
And that plane was the real life version of Dusty, the lead character in Disney's soon-to-be-released animated movie Planes.
Several months ago Air Tractor officials say Disney's promotions department contacted them to help bring Dusty to life before the movie hits the silver screen.

"We helped them get an airplane, one of our customers in San Antonio,  do airshow promotions and paint his airplane like the real Dusty," says Kristin Edwards, vice president of sales at Air Tractor.

Dusty will remain at Air Tractor for the next few days before it heads back to San Antonio.
As for the movie Planes, it opens in theaters across the country on Friday.
