    Default She put them on and got off it.

    1. She put on her shoes and got off the plane.
    2. She put them on and got off it.
    Is sentence #2 acceptable?

    Not in any serious context. It could be used jokingly:
    Q: What did the lady do with her shoes when the plane landed?
    A: She put them on and got off it.
