Football helmets, motorcycle helmets, car body parts, M16 stock/receiver. None of them have magnesium. Plastics have many advantage over metal. Thermodynamically more stable. Light, strong and they have give. Tooling and material expenses drastically lower.

And airplanes are made of metal. Regardless of how many examples you cite, you can't deny that magnesium alloy is stronger than plastic.
