How to use angles in game with QGraphicsRectItem

So I am working on a 2D landing sim and have managed to get the basics together to make it playable, but I want the plane to tilt up and down so that I can move in a neater fashion on the Y plane. So what I want to know is whether there is a way to make the rectangle substituting for a plane tilt up and down. Thank you!
