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. -Gail, for the T2T service
