  1. I will be happy to critique your thinking on this. Consider not reality, I suspect your teacher wants you to look at newtons third law, and ignore the effect of air friction (very great) on the airplane.

  3. If both planes are fighters , they can only fire toward the front and thus a bullet fired forward will slow the plane down . If there is heavy automatic weapon , it can slow the aircraft considerably . However, if bullets are fired toward the rear , they will speed up the aircraft.
