So, which American state beginning with M would the plane from Madrid to Montana fly over? Surely the plane would fly over Montana for at least the last leg before landing.

Minnesota springs to mind.

Let us resort to the tried and tested method of using MS Autoroute to draw curved straight lines ...

A flight from Madrid to the far southeast corner of Montana would indeed fly over the northwest angle of Minnesota. Mind you, there are only five airports in Montana which have customs and immigration facilities, and none of these five airports is in the far southeast corner.

Realistically, an improbable scheduled flight from Madrid to Montana would use Billings Logan International Airport. The curved straight line between there and Madrid flies over Manitoba, but no other entity beginning with an <M>.

Billings, being well within the borders of Montana, is surrounded by lots of Montana countryside, which the plane would have to traverse in order to land at the airport. So Montana itself is the obvious and correct answer in all circumstances and for whichever Montana airport.
