When is a plane "destroyed"?

I never shot at planes much but strafed an attack plane the other day and got the "vehicle disabled" message.

I would've thought that meant shot down and therefore destroyed.

So when is it officially destroyed? Attack planes can't repair themselves, can they?

0 HP = Destroyed

Disables are <10% HP IIRC.

I find majority of the complaints I hear about this game somehow never appear in my games.

Its basically the same for planes and vehicles: destroyed is when they explode at 0 HP. Disabled is when they drop below 10HP. Vehicles are totally immobilized until you clear the status with a repair cycle, planes lose control authority and will start a death spiral when disabled until it is cleared with a repair cycle. Plane disables usually lead to plane destroys since they will generally crash before they can be repaired unless it happens at high altitude. So if you get a disable you will often get the destroy unless someone finishes it off when it's doing down.

Attack plane can be repaired from the pilot seat.

All vehicle/planes can be repaired by someone in the driving/piloting seat that is carrying a repair tool. So both pilot and tanker by default and support with a tool equipped that switches into the seat.
