Actually I think this is a great idea. There can also be things like
burning rings suspended from balloons that you have to fly through for
extra points (like in the circus).  I assume this is for a single
plane at the time, otherwise there would be problems if one plane is
much ahead of the other and they don't fit on the screen at the same
time.  Maybe there could be a horizontal splitscreen, so that two
people can play at the same time (still in the same level at the same time).

Perhaps this `nonviolent' style is actually more fun than bombing you
opponent.. The planes can still bump into each other, but there are no
obvious weapons on the planes.

Seems like a good idea. I'll have to hack some sort of level editor together..
