    Depends on how fast one can fly I suppose. Like in volume 1 of Animal Man he points out it would be faster for him to drive. I always assumed Diana could fly faster than a jet. How fast can Diana fly exactly? Does anyone have speed feats for her in flight?

    Was the Invisible Plane created by Marston and Peter? Yes.

    So of course I love it.

    If they do bring it back I would like to see something akin to her Jet in Trinity:

    Completely Invisible and stealthy ( Superman didn't even know she was there until she spoke)

    Enough space she hold her arsenal

    Computer sensor that can track or trace just about anything that has been airborne

    Could it make sense if the viewers see the plane but not the people in the comic?

    No, never have, she can fly, so it's kinda redundant, but hey, that's just me.

    Good point but what if she needs to go stealth to go into a place danger without the help of the league saying.

    Then neither (her flying/and or flying a plane) would apply, if her mission called for a more stealth approach...

    The plane can not be see by radars. As well as it's completely silent. There is no noises common from the plane .I believe not even when landing. Look at the comic pages post not even superman can see or hear it. In recent years Wonder Woman is invisible when she inside the plane.

    Not that I'm aware of in nu52, but she's been portrayed as creating a sonic boom in her own book while flying. This automatically means at the very LEAST over 700mph

    I support the invisible plane, but I'm very critical over its execution.

    I see no reason for the Amazons to have aircraft of any kind, much less invisible supersonic jets. Regardless of their level of technology, I just fail to see why a small, isolated population living on a small isolated island needs something like that. And dont get me started on the resources or inspiration required to make such a thing. I understand that yes, this is all make believe and none of it makes any real sense. However, this just pushes past my personal levels of suspension.

    However, with a proper explanation I fully support the plane and wouldnt mind seeing it brought back. If, for example, it was a highly advanced prototype designed by the military which Diana somehow came to own, I'd be cool with it. I dont really want it to be a gift from another franchise, in the way the last version was made by WayneTech, but I can accept that if it's well told. I also have no problem with the Amazons somehow being involved in the plane's origins, but that involvement needs to make sense.

    If it's brought back, it needs to be utilized properly. I see it as another weapon in Diana's arsenal. She has the lasso, the bracers, the armor, and the plane. Mentally controlled (telepathic uplink?) and armed with high grade weapon systems. It should be used in combat on a fairly regular basis, firing and flying in conjunction with Diana's physical movements and attacks. Diana charging to the attack, lasso going nuts around her, with a stealth fighter shooting by overhead, firing bullets and missiles around and past her is a pretty badass image.

    It has to be done right visually. And I have no idea how that works, but I do know that fans should not be sitting around a message board questioning something as simple as "Can people see her while flying?" It has to be used in a dynamic fashion, and the reasons for Diana keeping it around (aside from the combat stuff) should be clear; the need for faster travel, or passengers, or getting past radar/stealth, or whatever.

    I agree that Mignolia's Trinity got it right in most respects.

    Also, someone asked how fast Diana is. Best I got is that, in a JLA Secret Files from Morrison's run, it was said that Diana could hit about Mach 2 or so; fast, but not nearly as fast as many of her teammates. And slow enough so that the plane would make sense for long trips.
