"Invisible Wreckage Everywhere."

I'm sure this joke has been made before, but if Wonder Woman's invisible jet crashes, do they ever find the black box?

Of course, Robot Chicken ran with an invisible jet joke; and in the Batman: Brave and the Bold episode "Scorn of the Star Sapphire!" Hal is test-piloting Batman's jet...batmobile...thing. But did Hal ever get to try out the invisible jet? Since it does seem like it'd be a lot of fun.

Batman does have a valid point about Hal's test flights, though. It's not quite a drinking game, but a shot every time Hal totals a plane could be troublesome. I think he crashes one in the B:B&B episode mentioned, his movie, at least once in the animated series...

Of course, Wonder Woman's invisible jet is an ingrained and beloved aspect of the character, except when it's not. The jet is to WW as, say, the Fortress of Solitude is to Superman, or...the big dinosaur in the Batcave is to Batman: neat, but perhaps not mandatory. I couldn't even guess when the last time the jet was seen...so to speak, but I usually liked it.

I thought Aquaman was going to have more lines in this one, but I don't think the blocking worked out for him. Ah, well.

Classic, classic Hal right? You're dead-on about him crashing planes and shit, which is weird since that's how his father died. Idk, maybe in a weird way that's how he chooses to honor him...by crashing planes; any plane. Hell it's probably even better if it's someone else's plane:)

That's probably how he spends Father's Day; Bruce visits his dad's grave, Superman goes to his fortress, Barry goes to see his in jail:), and Hal crashes planes. Wow, those guys are really fucked up huh?:)

Classically good skit my man.

Oh for...! Do Not Let Hal fly your plane! At least not if you ever want to actually USE it again.
