Launchpad McQuack

Launchpad has been in two Disney cartoon series. His first was in Ducktales (in my opinion the greatest Disney show of all time), where he lived in the town of Duckburg. The second show being Darkwing Duck, where he lived in the town of Saint Canard.
Launchpad comes from a family of pilots, his father was Ripcord, his mother was Birdie and his sister was Loopy. They formed The Flying McQuacks before Launchpad went to work for Scrooge McDuck.
Launchpad has an old school style when it comes to outfits; he always dresses like a 1930s pilot. He wore a bomber jacket, scarf, and aviator goggles. Two of his classic quotes are: 'If it has wings, I can crash it' and 'Any crash you can walk away from is a good crash'
Launchpad was voiced by Terence McGovern.
Launchpad has been retired as a Meet and Greet character at Disney World unfortunately. But he can still be seen during special events, so make sure to take time to get a picture with him if you see how out around the parks.
