I'm not sure how you would come up with a plane to practice extrication. You might have to just check with some of the smaller air services at your local airport.
As far as cutting, cut parallel above and below the cabin windows on larger aircraft. This is where you are least likely to hit any lines, wiring, etc. Ideally, you want to try to gain access through the doors and emergency exits first. Small aircraft, well, if there is much left to cut you just need to watch for fuel and make sure there is no power still functioning in the plane.
I have a number of crash recovery guides in PDF format that I can share with you if you would like them. They certainly help with aircraft familiarization. Send me an email if you would like them.
You might also try contacting some of the ARFF Fire Academys such as Dallas/Fort Worth, Salt Lake City, etc. I'm not sure how much they would help without actually attending one of their programs but it might not hurt to try. They might be able to point you in the right direction to help you get what you need.
You might also post your question to the ARFF.Info forums and see if anyone there can help you.
