Perhaps s/he has Freesat and is very close to the airport. Can't see a
mechanism otherwise.

RX being overloaded by some signals from the plane adding to the "strong"
ones from Freeview? i.e. matter of an RX that accepts and is overloaded by
out of band input at a high power level?

Faintly possible, but AFAIK the only big output from a plane is ATC in AM VHF [for now].

Is there any possibility of Freeview sugnals being reflected off the
plane at sufficient strength to interfere with the direct signal?

I suppose that would need a badly positioned aerial so that its
reception of the direct signal was poor.
