* ''TheElectricCompany'''s animated segment, "The Adventures of Letterman," had one episode set on a plane. The series' villain, the Spellbinder, pulls off what today would be considered an act of terrorism: Spotting a plane with an elementary school class (along with teachers, the principal and chaperones) going on a cross-country trip, Spellbinder decides to change the "e" in plane to "t," creating "plant." The plant begins a freefall from 30,000 feet, [[DudeNotFunny the Spellbinder laughs at the situation(!)]] and [[DangerDeadpan the pilot to cry out to the control tower for help, knowing that the situation is hopeless]]. Never fear: Letterman shows up in time to restore the "e" in plane and the flight to continue on uneventfully. [[note]]Today, Spellbinder -- who creates the situation for his own amusement -- would be shot on sight, or in the very least receive a swift and sure death sentence; here, he simply yells "curses" and lives to fight another day. Additionally, the segment (which was not part of any re-aired ''The Electric Company'' episode that ran on Noggin in the early 2000s) would have been pulled immediately after 9/11 (due to the historic event's association with Middle Easterners).[[/note]]

* One episode of ''{{Patlabor}}'' takes place almost entirely on the plane Kanuka Clancy is taking back to America... but it never actually gets off the ground due to an overeager hijacker making his move a little early.

** And guess what? ''HumanTarget'' has "Rewind", where the team needs to prevent a murder on a plane to Seattle. Differing only in that [[spoiler:the former plane almost crashed deliberately, as part of the plot, while the latter plane only almost crashed cause a stray bullet started a fire.]]
