The plane bits are not removable but the wings are highly posable, so there is almost certainly a configuration that can sweep them out of the way enough to satisfy without actually detaching. The nosecone hides in the legs, so it's never necessary to take them off: doing so would cause his legs to become even more hollow. I really like the mold, especially when you fan-mode up the plane, as it is his weakest form in the standard configuration. The retail one has really bad paint and my copy has loose hips, but that's what I get for buying him weeks before mass release at a Florida comic shop. It's a really neat toy.
