Dream meaning: Airplane

PlaneYou are “flying high” and whatever happens can reflect wishes/anxieties/progress regarding your life or professional progress, possibly your ability to “rise above it all” risk-taking abilities/attitudes. Are you the pilot, in charge but isolated from the rest of the group?


Dream interpretation of plane can suggest difficulty boarding the plane may reflect anxieties about, or reluctance in, pursuing a particular plan, although missing a plane is a common anxiety dream. An accident suggests the perils of pursuing a particular goal or route, possibly a fall in self esteem or confidence.

    I had a dream that I was in an airplane up in the sky…and I felt the airplane jolt….then it started to nose dive into the earth…I could see the landscape below…and thought, “I’m going to die”…then I woke up.

    I have just had ad ream where i was with my sister going to board a plane. We went past all the checks so i went to board fast then my sista was coming just behind me. As i had just taken two steps climbing i decided to wait 4 her. We climbed together. She branched off a little bit, suddenly my bro came to wish us a safe journey.
    I woke up before we got into the plane.

    I have a recurring dream of being in a plane which lands on the ground. It drives along the roads like a car, up country roads and motorways trying to find a long stretch to take off. We find a long road and the pilot tries hard but it ends up back on the ground, going under bridges and missing trees and buildings by inches. I’m in the plane and I’m hysterically crying. I always end up getting off the plane while others stay on.
    It’s the same dream all the time, although the passengers I’m with are different.
    I never die and the plane never crashes but its a horrible dream all the same!

    I have recurring dreams of looking up in the sky and seeing numerous planes.
    Mainly they are large white, beige. Rare occasion they are of different colours.
    Then I seem to feel or say they are going to attack us all on earth. I wake up with such tremendous fear and anxiety.

    I had a dream where I board a plane for the first time. I was scared since I told myself in real life that never will I board a plane ever no matter what. But in this dream I had no option but boarding it. To my surprise, they were calling names of passengers on board and it happened that we were only 2 country men on board. Then the plane took off past the clouds. I was scared a little but then enjoyed the experience. The bends it took to avoid black clouds and the height it went till we landed at a certain airport where 2 passengers got off. And seeing the people of that land were happy and respectful – even children when passing elders were greeting and cracking jokes. We met the owner. He smiled and said “I love seeing people boarding my plane happy like this. That’s why I bought this plane, am happy to see guy”, he went. I loved the people of the land. The whole scenario gave me confidence and I felt a happiness which I never felt before. Whats the meaning of my dream, good people?

    I keep having a dream where I’m at the airport with someone I know although in reality I have no clue who they are. It often involves me leaving UK to come home. When I board the plane finally its very elaborate not many passengers but many modern interior designs & ammenities (personal laptops larger windows to view outside etc) but the plane can never take off due to weather (wind or heavy rains) also electrical issues. Another thing is a cpl of the passengers are famous people? Lol! I actually like these dreams because they are very detailed and again the design of the plane is so unique.

    I have a recurring dream where I am inside a large airplane trying to take off but it can’t. It leaves runway and dodges obstacles like electric poles, hills, buildings. I am a passenger and observe from the cockpit. Overall, feeling fearful, knowing we’re not going to live through this.

    I had a dream of flying in plane and looking outside of it. The plane was flying very smoothly and I was happy. It then landed for some time. And again took off. And throughout the journey in the plane I was happy.

    Had a dream last night that I was talking to my mother. We both looked up in the sky and saw a 747 airplane approaching lower and lower. It almost hit the top of my house then crashed a couple of blocks up. I immediately tried to call 911 but kept dialing the wrong numbers. When I finally dialed the right number, the woman that answered had an accent and she couldn’t understand what I was trying to tell her. Nothing else happened.

    For the past year I have had a recurring dream where I miss my plane. I have it at least three times a week. I never schedule another flight, and I always end up alone in the terminal after I miss my flight. No one works there, no one else is waiting for any more planes, as if all the flights have left for good.

    I have a repetitive dream over the years of a commercial airline I somehow know is going to crash. And then it does.
    Sometimes I can’t figure out which way to run to get away from it to avoid getting hurt.

    I have a recurring dream, where i am looking up to the sky and there are thousands of planes flying overhead in all different directions. i have a feeling of doom while having this dream

  • Perpetua // Apr 30, 2009 at 7:00 am

    I have a recurring dream in which I am in an airplane that is flying, but is flying so low to the ground that it usually just comes to a rest on the ground. It flys along roads, under bridges like being in a car.

    When I was a child, I remember a recurring dream where I would sit in a chair and flap my arms like a bird and fly.

    I am a Freudian trained psychologist, so I am interpreting from that perspective. Airplanes can symbolize the male erection, so dreams involving airplane crashes can symbolize anxieties involving male erectile problems.
