The hull of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, constructed of carbon fiber–reinforced plastic and other polymer composites, is inspected before electronics are added.

And this is a good use of plastic because this plane will require less fuel and actually help with jet lag because the cabin can be more fully pressurized.
