Example: I saw a biplane fly overhead.
Its pilot was performing daring new stunts.
I ran into a house to tell a man who was in bed to run out and see the plane’ (David R).
The example clearly shows one aspect of what a plane means, being daring in a new area, taking risks in life, braving a new work area or relationship.
Sometimes the plane in the sky represents us feeling threatened by something new or unknown, thus one dreamer dreamt of bombs being dropped from a plane when she was offered a new job which would take her into the public eye.
The crashed plane: can be anxiety bringing down our ambition or adventurousness; a loss of self confidence or mental equilibrium.
The plane journey: shows a move towards independence; leaving home or friends; success.
Being grounded: sense of not getting anywhere and frustration.
An attacking aircraft: feeling attacked either by our own doubts and self criticism, or that of others.
