The Manta Jet is a specially designed transport jet resembling a manta ray. It is featured in the film The Incredibles.
It is a black sleek twin engine Jet, designed after a manta ray. The engine is in the rear on the plane on either side of the dorsal fin. In between the engines is a cargo door that can be used to drop “payloads”. The nose of the jet has two “Cephalic lobes” that have two turbines to help steer the jet. They also bend downwards and turn into the front landing gears. The rear landing gear lowers down from the wings of the jet. Its interior is divided into two sections; a cockpit and conference room in the back.
The cockpit has two Captain Style chairs that have two arm rests; they can also act as trays for food and beverages. The left side of the cockpit has a door that attaches to a docking port. The cockpit has a giant window widescreen in the "mouth" of the jet.
The conference room has a translucent holographic monitor at a desk like machine. The monitor is in between four chairs. The monitor is used to transmit useful information to everyone seated.
It has an automatic pilot which can fly to preset locations. The pilot will also automatically offer food and beverages. The Manta Jet is also able to travel underwater like a submarine.

Syndrome tries to escape but his cape is caught in the suction of the jet's engine, killing him and making the jet explode. The ruined jet crashes into the Parrs' home.
