あそこはにほんのひこきがあります

Is this sentence flawless? (Over there is a Japanese airplane or There is a Japanese airplane over there) Couldn't type the kanji on the keyboard.

あそこに日本製の飛行機があります。(あそこににほんせいのひこうきがあります。).

'Asoko ha' would describe the location 'there', i.e., That place is a Japanese plane. This structure also doesn't work with the arimasu ending. 'Asoko ni' (in that location) would be correct.

'Nihon no' is too general. You need to say 'Japanese-built' (nihon-sei).

'Hikoki' is missing a sound, namely う (ひこき).

Thank you! I am now thinking if I say 日本製の飛行機はあそこにあります that would be better. Any difference between arimasu and desu ending?
