This thread is started to sharpen everybody's knowledge, break one's head, lose one's sleep, increase stress (to lose your weight)
But only egoless & humble people are welcome here.

There is no harm asking for answer.
Answer will follow (with time)

The idea is to make this a top viewed thread surpassing all because curiosity kills the cat.

Although the Google helps you 99% of the time, but I have some system to defy the TinEye and certain way to ask questions that may not be able to help you through Google.

My only doubt, if I ask question about chemistry and find no reaction, this would, kind of put me down ;)

Enough said.
Lets begin:

The answer should be a raw material on both these items viz; Aircraft and car....

Run rabbit run............

Steel? Oh ok!
No steel is not ok.

Because the cars can be made from other material too (for example aluminum)

Steel was just a rebuttal to your answer.

The answer will be big surprise for all and sundry.

Without this - .......... - its not possible to make cars or airplanes.

The answer is in (just) one word.

For example this car is made of Aluminum:

As per my understanding, majority of a car is aluminum , not steel, due to weight issue making it fuel inefficient.

My other guess to your question would be - Plastics?

Following is the reason why Aluminum is not used in cars:

Plastic is not crucial for car or an aircraft.

Question is quite opaque, there are plenty of different materials that goes in to producing cars and planes, but for functioning of combustion engines fuel is needed, but than without battery we can't even start.
In modern cars, we have circuit boards, processors and SW, so if my garage decide that my Tesla drive should stop functioning, all it needs a lock in SW logic.... aka kill switch.

If I gave the answer, you would agree that the answer was right. and without that it is not possible to drive car or fly an aircraft.
This is something indispensable if you want these two things to work.

Hence the question is not opaque.
