Hi Jake,

Can you show them a rolodex, and let them see that there are planes going in
all sorts of directions. The two lines you mention ARE in a plane, just not
the same plane the bases are in. It is probably going to be easier for them
to consider planes that are vertical and horizontal, but helping them to
visualize other planes, as well, will be a good thing, too.
