Several other aeroplanes have been seen. In The Railway Series, various aeroplanes are seen at Dryaw Airfield.

Additionally, another aeroplane appears in the twenty-fourth series episode, World of Tomorrow. Though the aircraft's size makes it difficult to decipher its appearance, it closely resembles a King Air B200 manufactured by Beechcraft. They were initially used for military service, but entered civil use in 1974. Australia currently leases a number of B200s as part of the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia and the Royal Australian Air Force. Emerson and Isla are other members of this class.
