“Jet planes don't have to stop for cows!”

Thomas and the Jet Plane is the third episode of the tenth series.


While Thomas is on his way to take a group of children to a picnic, he meets a jet plane named Jeremy who states about how wonderful it is being a jet plane. Thomas thinks that Jeremy is being boastful and decides he doesn't want to talk to him again. Thomas becomes even more upset when he has to stop for a signal and wait for a cow blocking the line to move. When Thomas arrives at the picnic, he recaps the day's events to Percy. Despite Percy's attempts to comfort Thomas about the things that engines can do, Thomas is still apprehensive.

Meanwhile, Jeremy notices a storm brewing and warns Thomas about it. Thomas picks up the children once he finds out and despite his reluctance asks if they can have the picnic in Jeremy's hangar. Jeremy agrees and he and Thomas soon become good friends. Sir Topham Hatt calls Thomas a really useful engine for saving the picnic.
