Can a plane disturb a tornado?

A tornado obviously needs a current to keep going so if that current were destroyed, would the tornado also be destroyed? Can you be able to fly an extreme sturdy plane through a tornado to disrupt the current?

We have planes and helicopters fly near tornadoes here in Oklahoma all the time to film the tornadoes begin, and finish, their reign of terror. ( if possible to do that. Some are a mile wide though which makes that impossible) They stay FAR AWAY from them. Nothing that we know of yet affects a tornado , though I know meteorologists at The University of Oklahoma in Norman are working on that idea. I am dreading this tornado season in a few months.

A fixed wing aircraft could certainly NOT affect a tornado. However, there's a theory that if a hinge-winged aircraft flapped its wings over the Amazon it would start a tornado in China. Personally, I don't believe it, but that's what they say.

Seriously? No pilot would fly anywhere near a tornado. His plane would be destroyed.

Nope, but a tornado disrupts planes and anything else they come in contact with.
