A plane is a carpentry tool used for producing a finished surface on (primarily) wooden material.

The object being referred to above, is an AERO plane, or, if you prefer, an aircraft.
So you've never used the term "plane" to refer to aircraft?

747 Jock - not sure whether to offer congratulations for diligence beyond the call of common-sense, or request a glass of whatever you are on, or, ask for your descriptive term for the enthusiasts who become unnaturally excited at the sight or sound of an aircraft of any description.
That quoted description of the Vientiane aircraft 'haul' was something never repeated elsewhere in some 50 years of aviation and related employment.

As I said, it evolves, imagine what they would of thought about what you were taught. and if it wasn't for Will Shakespeare you would have never got aroused

I was taught that that should have been written (and spoken) as "would have thought" but, in today's better education with it's emphasis on University degree quality, what would I know ?

I refer to those people as plane spotters and I often refer to aircraft as planes.

However, I wasn't the person who used the words ugly, stupid, pointless & idiotic when referring to the use of "plane". Even if you only used the term once, you still used a word that you now appear to despise and if it was once good enough for you, why do you now feel that it's such a poor use of the English language?

Back to the bag. Isn't it perfect during these times to advertise flying by fashion items to this income group?
Especially in the C-130.

Apart from the "look at me" crowd who have more money than sense or taste, who would even dream of buying a bag like this?
It's not as if it will get taken on board an aircraft as putting it in an overhead locker will soon knacker it (Unless it will fit in a 1st class locker).

That bag however is IMO, classier than some of the other offerings from the new Louis Vuitton collection which going by the "woke" description for that collection, isn't really that surprising:
Investigating the unconscious biases instilled in our collective psyche by the archaic norms of society, the collection’s presentation is thematically informed by James Baldwin’s seminal 1953 essay “Stranger in the Village.” Through his experiences as an African-American visitor in a Swiss village, Baldwin’s essay serves as a leitmotif for Abloh’s explorations of a familiar present-day experience by reflecting society’s established structure of cultural outsiders vs. insiders.

Absolutely correct ... but then, neither was I.!
Those words referred to the object under discussion - to whit, a 'bag' shaped in the form of an aircraft.
Literacy, of course, encompasses both reading and writing and one without the other can often lead to errors.

Agreed, A momentary lapse.

I guess you aren’t cramming that into the overhead luggage bins in coach...

Oh no! The wings ripped off!

I’ll have to sue!

Do you store your toothbrush in the “jet” engines?
