Check out the Palm Springs plane depicted in Disney's "Planes"

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Coachella Valley residents and visitors can check out one of the planes depicted in the new Disney movie ``Planes'' tomorrow at the Palm Springs Air Museum.

The F4U Corsair will be on display at 1 p.m. Saturday as part of the museum's ``Open Cockpit'' events, in which people can sit in the plane's cockpit and pose for photos.

The character Skipper in ``Planes,'' which opens today, is a Corsair. Disney recorded engine sounds from one of the museum's planes for Skipper's engine noise, according to the museum.

During ``Open Cockpit,'' museum patrons can watch documentaries featuring the particular aircraft, and ask museum volunteers questions. ``Open Cockpit'' is free with museum admission.

For information, call (760) 778-6262 or go to www.palmspringsairmuseum.org.
