Thanks for your query.

Fractured bone and a fore arm plaster should not cause any problem in a travel in a plane.
There should not be much pain during take off and landing.

Any sort of movement or injury may iincrease the pain for which I guess your doctor might have prescribed a painkiller.

If not get it precribed.

Have a safe juorney.

Take care.
