To see an airplane in your dream indicates that you will overcome your obstacles and rise above to a new level of prominence and status.
You may experience a higher consciousness, newfound freedom and greater awareness.
To dream that a plane crashes, on the other hand, suggests that you have set overly high and unrealistic goals for yourself.
We received an interesting amount of mail about dreams containing planes and plane crashes.
Airplanes, like all other vehicles, symbolize a portion of your life’s journey.
Since we use planes to travel to places that are far away, the logical progression of this interpretation is that the airplane is symbolic of an event, individuals, or emotions that are either in the past, physically apart from you, or deep in the unconscious and far from conscious thought.
Disturbing dreams in which you are being bombed or where you see a bloody crash scene may be trying to bring up issues and feelings that have been buried in the unconscious mind (from the past or the present) but are still powerful and disturbing to the dreamer.
The more powerful, vivid, and disturbing this dream is, the greater the necessity to interpret and obtain a satisfactory meaning.
