Aeroplane

An aeroplane flying the British skies on 1 September, 1992

An aeroplane was a large Muggle winged aircraft which was propelled forward by thrust from a jet engine or propeller. It was used by Muggles to transport people and cargo through the air over long distances, or to otherwise inaccessible locations.

HistoryEdit

Students playing Quidditch at Mahoutokoro School of Magic on the Japanese island of Minami Iwo Jima had to take care to avoid planes from the Japan Self-Defense Force airbase on the nearby island of Iwo Jima.[1]

For his eleventh birthday in 1991, Dudley Dursley received a remote-control toy aeroplane as one of his many presents,[2] which he soon crashed.[3]

In the evening of 1 September, 1992, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley passed by an aeroplane while flying an enchanted Ford Anglia to Hogwarts Castle in Scotland.[4]

It was Arthur Weasley's dearest ambition to find out how aeroplanes managed to stay in the air.[5]

On 8 June, 2014, the USA defeated Liechtenstein in the quarter-finals of the 427th Quidditch World Cup. The Americans enthusiastically celebrated this victory, given their country's historical poor performance in international Quidditch (the game of Quodpot was more popular in the US), sending many red, white and blue sparks into the air. This required the ICWQC to perform thousands of Memory Charms on Muggles living around the edge of the Patagonian Desert where the Quidditch World Cup was being held that year and flying overhead on aeroplanes.[6]
