The plane components are crafted in the 3x3 grid, but needs final assembly in the special 5x3 grid included in the mod.

To craft a plane, one needs to make the following parts: A propeller, an engine, some wings, a tail, a cockpit, and some wheels. Some planes require more than this, like the Spitfire requiring a bomb bay.

First of all, you are going to need your 5x3 Plane crafting grid to make the planes. Craftingbenchplanes.png
