Several articles/books that I have read include sentences where a "plane skips".
Examples from Google Books:
As the U-2 settled down the forward landing gear touched the runway and the plane skipped and bounced back into the air.
The plane skipped into the air.
The plane skipped and skidded on its belly across a field some distance from the airstrip before coming to an abrupt stop.
From The Week:
The bomber skipped across the water like a huge metal bird, before it stopped and sank into the Overton Arm of the lake.
The first time I skipped through these pages, I thought it was "skid", but then I realized it was "skip" and tried to picture that. The closest meanings of skip, AFAIK, would be "to move with hopping steps" or "to jump". It doesn't seem to make much sense though. How does a plane jump or hop? I have gone over MW and OED's skip pages, and found nothing beyond the definitions I mentioned related to movement.
