Dear 100 Hour Board,

Sometimes there appear small airplanes painted in white about 3-4 feet long on the side of the freeway. What do they mean? What are they for?

A: Dear airplane noticer,

I noticed those too, and asked my mom. She informed me that the airplanes on the side of the road are to let airplane pilots know what sections of road would be safest to use for an emergency landing. They're typically near long stretches of straight road (often flat, too). Kinda makes sense.
