Chaotix Hacking (formerly Chaotix Level Editing) In case you haven't noticed what I'm doing to the SCHG page...

Interesting to see Tails in Chaotix sprite form, even if it's just his face (for now?....).
That said Chaotix always seemed like a kinda rushed title, so it doesn't surprise me there is a fair amount of unused stuff in the games memory.

Looking at it, the first thing that comes to my mind is the S3&K ending sequence. Isn't that, like, the only other time we see the plane flying to the left of the screen? In fact, come to think of it, doesn't a larger piece of artwork of Sonic & Tails on the Tornado appear in Chaotix's good ending? Could this at one point have been intended as part of an ending sequence? Whatever it's for, I see the Chaotix art team actually bothered to fix the "SONIC" on the side - S3&K just mirrored the plane for the ending sequence since it's seen flying right in all other instances, so the letters were mirror-image in that game.
Looking forward to any further discoveries! = )

Not entirely sure if the animation is correct but yeah
The screenshots above have a border drawn over the outermost pixels because .net is stupid and border style FixedSingle does that. I will be releasing my viewer later so you can use that for more accurate GIFs.

NOW That makes sense to me. That's is simply the proto art for the credits, on which, Tails appears on a plane.
Anyway =P. If that is true, I'm glad they replaced it, 'cause the final is much more detailed.
