First Impressions
First impression I had when I viewed this during voting was: Challenge misinterpretation. I gave this a 2 and felt that it didn't meet the Challenge - "For this challenge, you should find or set up a scene where seemingly unrelated objects are positioned in such a way that they blend together to create a seemingly fluid scene. As an example, see DougPaz's "Back" Cover Girl."

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
Good shot of these aircraft (Challenge subject aside for a moment). Being so centered, there could be more interest added by a variation in composition, especially with the whiter cloud area creeping into frame bottom left.

From your Photographer's Comments I see that you knew this might not meet the Challenge. I can see the 'position' aspect/interpretation, but the Challenge was about the 'clever photographic composition and placement' to create a layered type image.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
30/42 is fairly low down the pack, but a score of 5.06 is quite good, considering the Challenge description.

Only a couple of your commenters seemed to have the Challenge a high priority when viewing/voting, which might also explain your average score from them of 6.87. One comment seems quite helpful regarding your composition.

Summary
Maybe a shot of these two at a different angle, showing them 'morphing' in some way may have enabled you to have a strong contender for this Challenge, otherwise this is one of the statistics of 'DNMC'. Always like it when I can see the pilot in the cockpit, so I like that aspect (and the shark nose) of the Warthog and nice shot of the motion of the propeller on the shiny Mustang.

Interesting. Too bad I don't know which one is old! ;) I guess prop planes are no longer designed and built? Interesting subject, static composition.

Critique Club Review:

Wow! What a twisted photo...

Color Saturation and Hue: Colors are realistic, hues are normal, saturation is not overdone.

Brightness and contrast: Contrast is good, highlights could be a little brighter.

Focus and depth of field: Focus is nice and sharp. Depth of field feels a bit shallow. The spider goes soft on its back and on its legs in the foreground.

The spider's face is partially obscured by two of its legs. A different angle for the photo would have helped here. The biggest problem, outside of the gross out factor that got you a bushel of ones, in the voting, is that there is no defined point of interest in this image. The sharpest areas of focus are either beetle legs leading you away from the picture, or hairy spider abdomen, because the face is obscured by soft focus legs.

From this angle it about all has to be sharp, and even then there is the spider face problem. Seeing more of the face is probably the best quick improvement to the image.
