An aeroplane flying the British skies on 1 September, 1992.

Molly Weasley: "Arthur, is that you?"
Arthur Weasley: "Yes. But I would say that even if I were a Death Eater, dear. Ask the question!"
Molly Weasley: "Oh, honestly…"
Arthur Weasley: "Molly!"
Molly Weasley: "All right, all right… What is your dearest ambition?"
Arthur Weasley: "To find out how aeroplanes stay up."
Molly and Arthur Weasley check each other's identities during the Second Wizarding War.[src]

An aeroplane is a large Muggle aircraft with wings which is propelled forward by thrust from a jet engine or propeller. It is used by Muggles to transport people and cargo through the air to long-distance, or otherwise inaccessible locations.

On his eleventh birthday in 1991, Dudley Dursley was given a remote control version of one of these as a present[1], which he soon crashed.[2]

In the evening of 1 September, 1992, Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley passed by an aeroplane while flying an enchanted Ford Anglia to Hogwarts Castle, in Scotland.[3]

It is Arthur Weasley's dearest ambition to find out how aeroplanes fly and stay up.[4]
