We consider decompositions of finite projective planes into copies of a particular structure. Our main theorem provides a connection between the existence of a proper projective subplane and the existence of a decomposition into sets of collinear points. Based on this result, we develop a connection between the existence of a projective subplane in a plane II and that of a hitting set in the dual of II.
