Your assumption is that all planes travel fast. I know some remote controlled aircraft that when put into a slight breeze can stay fixed in space, in relation to the ground. Any bird could out fly a plane in this state.

Or if the plane is parked on the ground.

Nice teaser, but I think that maybe you need to specify what kind of plane, and maybe that would clear it up a little bit.

actually to be specific any thing on a moving plane is traveling faster then it because then u are mesuring RELITIVE speeds of the bird and the plane witch is the speed of the plane + the bird...so it must be faster

Good but, I think this teaser should have been placed in the trick category.

There are hawks that plummet down to earth and then take flight after a time. The gravitational force accelerates them to amazing speeds and so can easily outrun a plane.

Planes don't fly, people fly planes.
