The Biplane Barrel[1] is a special biplane-shaped barrel that is owned by Funky Kong in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. It serves as the replacement for the original Jumbo Barrel from the first Donkey Kong Country. If Diddy or Dixie Kong visit Funky's Flights II, Funky allows them to use the Biplane Barrel to travel between any previously accessed worlds via the Crocodile Isle map, except Lost World, which can only be accessed through Klubba's Kiosk. Using the Biplane Barrel costs two Banana Bunch Coins per each world at first, but all consecutive uses within that world is free. Like the Jumbo Barrel, the Biplane Barrel can move the Kongs between locations on the world map faster than when they are on foot. The Funky's Flights II theme continues to play on the world map while the Kongs are using the Biplane Barrel. The only other way of returning to the Crocodile Isle map is by defeating a boss, which is a less safe alternative.

In the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 2, the Biplane Barrel was replaced with the Gyrocopter.

In DK: Jungle Climber, Funky owns a plane that largely resembles the Biplane Barrel, only referred to as Funky's airplane. Donkey and Diddy Kong use it travel to each world's smaller island, provided they have enough oil barrels.
