My dog Stoney, barks at thunder when a storm passes thru. Also he loves to bark at airplanes when they fly by. I don't really know why he does this.

If your dog is frightened and/or reactive to these noises, whatever you do, do NOT pet your dog to try to calm them. This is reinforcing the behaior; you are telling them it's OK to act this way and even more that you WANT them to act this way. It may be hard for you, but the best thing to do is to completely ignore the dog while it is acting this way.
