    Classic Superman (pre-1986) was pretty much all-powerful; when John Byrne took over, his powers came from him being a "yellow sunlight battery" powering a telekinetic field around his body. His uniform was no longer invulnerable; instead, when his energy reserve ran down, it led to the iconic "Death of Superman" tattered cape. He could catch the plane by its nose because the telekinetic field enveloped the plane, slowing it gradually instead of crunching it up into a pancake.

    Of course it's not possible for Superman to catch Louis Lane - there never was such a person. It was LOIS Lane.
