What about Ant Parker's books, there are a series of 4 I think about different vehicles. Terrific Trains, Roaring Rockets etc, and you can def. buy a set of all of them as board books. Then there's Richard Scarry. Ben Blathwayt's Little Red Train series has been a hit with my twins (4) since before they were 2, they love the fiddly little details, and some of them come in board book format. And then there's the 3 or 4 book series with fab rhyming text which I seem to remember being to recite off pat in a one o'clock club with another mum which I have maddeningly forgotten the name of. I will try and get my brain into gear and come back with it later. One last one - Oi Get off our Train by John Burningham, perhaps the very best of all, and if your son is anything like mine he will then want to get every Burningham out from the library.

There is the Amazing Machines series that you can see by clicking here. The individual books are paperback and the boxset contains smaller hardback books - they are great. There are also the Usborne Lift and Look ones that my boys love - you can see them by clicking here They are board books.
There is also this one which is relatively recently published.Its a board book.
Hope this helps

Also thought of Dig Dig Digging. Although there are no planes, but things like diggers, fire engines, dumper trucks, bulldozers, car transporters, lorries, dustcarts, etc.
