Not really. A railroad intersection would be an example of two lines intersecting. An example of two planes intersecting would be the ground and the side of a building or the ground and the railroad crossing sign post.

In building construction, you usually have one horizontal plane (that floors) that is intersected by a vertical plane (the walls or support beams).

The Equator is a real world example, being the circumference of the Earth.

A map is a good example.

I think the road is a intersecting lines do you think that is write?

web can use it for making building construction machine.

I couldn't find a better example than the........."X" of bones on a pirate flag!

Yes. A line can be the intersection of two planes, or any number of planes. A real-world example would be the central axis (axle) of a paddlewheel on a steamboat, which would be coplanar with all of the planes represented by the individual paddles. A single line is similarly the intersection of perpendicular planes.
