  • Bravo and Echo are F/A-18F Super Hornets, numbers 113 and 210 respectively, of VFA-103 “The Jolly Rogers.” Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards were cast to voice them based on them both appearing in Top Gun. In addition, Bravo and Echo’s flight helmets are the same design/colors as ‘Goose’ and ‘Ice Man’, the characters Edwards and Kilmer played.
  • Skipper is a Chance Vought F4U Corsair.
  • Leadbottom appears to be based on a PT-17 Stearman biplane.
  • Bulldog is a De Havilland DH.88 Comet.
  • El Chupacabra is a Gee Bee R1 racer.
  • Ripslinger is custom-built carbon-fiber plane that resembles a North American P-51B Mustang, although with slightly swept-back wings and tail surfaces. An actual P-51B in the paint scheme of the “Tuskeegee Airmen” 332nd Fighter Group is also seen signaling the takeoff for the race at JFK Airport.
  • Ned and Zed are Extra 300s with a different-shaped cockpit window.
  • Rochelle is a Bay Super V which is a conversion of a Beechcraft Twin Bonanza. Only five were ever built. The only thing that differs from the Super V to Rochelle is that she only has one window on each side unlike the Super V
