Without bothering to actually count, I'd wager that about half my shots are airplanes on the ground, and half are airplanes flying.
Even when they're flying, I like capturing takeoffs with an interesting background, for instance, buildings, control tower, other airplanes, what-have-you. An airplane against a plain blue sky doesn't do much for me, but it's great practice.

While shots on the ground are interesting and to a certain extent, easier to master, the challange of capturing a fast moving aircraft at the point of touchdown or rotation is where my interest lies and give a sense of action and satisfaction when your planning comes together.
I agree about the takeoff/landing part - that's what I like as well. However, I find that shots against a blue sky (or any sky) are generally much easier and less time-consuming to edit.
