One of my guys at the local airport is a movie SFX guy (and a pyro guy, and an SCA armorer, and a Wasteland Weekend armorer, and a Labyrinth of Jared Wizard) and has built small and large trebuchets over the years. I think they've thrown cars, dumpsters, large boulders, etc. He'd have no problem tossing an airplane around :)
