A Plain Shortage of Planes is the second Dastardly & Muttley segment of the third episode of Dastardly & Muttley in Their Flying Machines. It first aired 27 September 1969 on CBS.
The Vulture Squadron's planes are destroyed during the team's latest attempt to catch Yankee Doodle Pigeon. The General tells Dick Dastardly there are no other planes available for them. They buy a plane from Bargain Bill's Used Plane Lot, and Klunk builds whatever he can from the spare parts of their old planes.
