Neither for me, it's always been 'Is it a bird, or is it a plane?'

I'd still say plane but if I had to choose between the two I would use aeroplane.

I knew someone would say that

In my opinion, when used in context then confusion will never arise

a Plane (as in the flying things) is a shortened term for AeroPlane so the term is technically correct.
