This one looks like it would actually be pretty easy. Look at the plane in sections. You have a top and a bottome half and where those seams would meet is where the red white and blue stripes go around the entire cake and also where the wings are joined to the body of the plan.

Just roll your fondant extra large and drape it over the cake and cut where that seam is going to be (where the stripes are), since you have plenty of fondant, smoothing won't be an issue (still do it, but it won't be a problem with wrinkles). Then flip the cake and do the same for the top. Hide the seem with your stripes! Does that help any? I hope but if not, I can probably think of a few other ways. Good luck and I am sure it will look fabulous!
