I don''t have time to dowload your code..but it should look something like this:

at the top of your file...state a global variable:

GLfloat planeRot; //a rotatation float for the your plane

then down below in your GLDrawScene()

glRotatef(planeRot, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

glBegin(GL_QUADS); //or whatever your using

//vertices or model code..whatever


planeRot += 0.5; // this moves it every frame

There you go..it''s that easy...well, sort of. I hope you meant a 3d geometric plane rather then an airplane...
