Aircraft seen in quiet country roads? (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

planes

'aircraft' is the definition.
(I know that planes is a type of heavier-than-air craft)

'quiet country roads?' is the wordplay.
'quiet' becomes 'p' (music symbol for 'piano', ie soft or quiet).
'country roads?' becomes 'lanes' (I've seen this in another clue).
'p'+'lanes'='PLANES'

'seen in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for planes that I've seen before include "Flat surface in Naples" , "Aircraft and tools for smoothing wood" , "Jets maybe" , "Trees" , "Those flying" .)
