The Batplane, which is painted black, is shown as an airplane with a short fuselage that has a single jet exhaust at the rear, and with long wings that are swept forward like a bat in full flight. However, when in the Watchtower's hangar, it is seen hanging nose down from a gantry with its wings folded like a sleeping bat.
On take-off from there, it drops from its position with its wings unfolding and starts its engine as it levels, before flying along a tunnel and out of the side of the volcano. The plane is able to hover in mid air and can land vertically. Batman carries a small utility that can summon the unmanned Batplane to fly to him. The cockpit has two seats arranged in tandem with an all-around canopy above, and if Batman ejects from there to tackle a foe, the plane can fly on unattended.
Unlike the Batmobile, the Batplane is fully armed and can fire missiles - probably from bays in its wings. It also has guns which are mounted near the wing roots.
There is a small cargo bay towards the rear of the fuselage with a hatch on the underside. It can hold a small payload - like Billy Batson.
