Time Flies...but Aeroplanes Crash is the fifth EP by the anarcho-punk band Subhumans. Unlike their previous EP's, "Time Flies..." was released as a 12" record, and features both live and studio tracks - the live tracks being taken from an aborted live album, recorded at Feltham Football Club. The record also features the piano-based song "Susan", written by Steve Hamilton - a friend of vocalist Dick.

In 1990, this EP, along with the band's sixth EP "Rats" was compiled as the "Time Flies + Rats" record, therefore collecting all of the band's remaining EP's (bar 1998's "Unfinished Business") that weren't featured on the "EP-LP" compilation.
