Combination of a Extra EA-300's fuselage, and a Granville R-1's vertical stabilizer
Tsubasa (翼) is a racing competitor in the Wings Around the Globe rally as racer #23.
The Japanese Racer, Tsubasa, is also known as "The Ninja" because competitors never see or hear him coming! With his slick airframe, he slices past them like an invisible Warrior.
In Planes, he sets the second 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. He is strangely not seen in the Wings Around the Globe pit row at John F. Kennedy International Airport along with his tent, although it could be that he was somewhere else at the time.
When Dusty is broken and needs repairs, Tsubasa gives him supplies to help him recover.
- His design is a combination of a Extra EA-300's fuselage, and a Granville R-1's vertical stabilizer.
- In Japanese, "Tsubasa" means wing.
