what does it say when you click on Airplane Grounded?
Did you do your A and B checks? The game will not remind you about those. You need to go in and manually do them (check the boxes) if thats the case.
It absolutely cannot be grounded unless you have missed some checks on it. And they must have been undone for considerable period after it was due before it's grounded.
