In Lilo & Stitch, Gantu uses his ship to attempt to transport Stitch and Lilo to the Grand Councilwoman. Stitch, however, escapes, and convinces Jumba and the others to launch a rescue mission, culminating in the destruction of the ship.
In Stitch! The Movie, Gantu has a replacement ship, which he uses to contact Hamsterviel. He later uses it to capture Stitch (again), but after Experiment 221 (Sparky) sabotages the ship, it crash-lands in a clearing by a waterfall, now unable to fly.
In Leroy and Stitch, Reuben repairs the ship for Lilo so that they can contact Stitch in the Big Red Battleship 9000.
