    According to this reddit post and the MCU wikia they took part in destroying the dropships. – TheLethalCarrot Aug 16 '18 at 12:13

    Also in a blink-and-you'll-miss scene, the Wakandan ships can be seen attacking the big vertical ships in the background. – Rebel-Scum Aug 16 '18 at 15:29
  • It will be useless to have the planes attack drop bombs on the battlefield since both sides were on it. – Bernard the Bear Sep 10 '18 at 2:28

    +1 Another scene showing the aircraft happens later when Thor is attacking the retreating landing craft. – Odin1806 Aug 16 '18 at 20:34
