I finally decided to buy a new DSLR, what about the canon 60D? is it a good camera for planespotting? I know of course that the quality of the lenses and the photographer's ability are more important but as beginner i'm in doubt on the equipment to buy.

If you have the budget, then it's a great camera. Just factor in you will need some good lenses to go along with it. If you don't have a lens budget, I would say you're better spending less on the body and using the saving for better lenses but if budget isn't a problem, the 60D will serve you well.
Equipment: 2x Canon EOS 50D; Sigma 10-20 EX DC HSM, 50-500 EX APO DG, Canon 24-105 f/4 L, Speedlite 430EX

I can really recommend you to buy the 60d. Just came back from DPS and had once again great fun with it. Currently using it with standart 18-135mm EFS lens and Tamron SP70-300 F/4-5.6 Di VC USD. Till now I never had the wish to go for any other lens, also a question of your personal budget
The LCD screen is very practical, for example to photo yourself. Playing with the M-modi always makes fun, with the time I got an idea of using it correctly.
