From this document Comprehensive symbols I see there is a bbding plane symbol which can be inserted into LaTeX. As a newbie to LaTeX, would you mind helping me understand how to insert it? The following attempts haven’t worked:

  • \Plane

  • \textplane

  • \equation{\plane}

  • $\plane$

  • Thanks for this. I thought That I had tried this, but actually I hadn’t. – Oliver Bliss Dec 3 at 13:32

My answer peraphs it is off-topic with your request to use bbding package. One day could use also an airplane departing or arriving (2nd and 3nd icon) with fontawesome5 package which contains all the icons from the Twitter Bootstrap framework, and now many more.

enter image description here


\faPlane, \quad \faPlaneArrival, \quad 
  • The second one looks more like it's crashing. That's not the attitude in which planes land. – Chris H Dec 3 at 14:05
