Abstract: New infinite Möbius planes are constructed using transfinite induction. Any infinite affine plane A can be embedded in a Möbius plane M and the construction allows some groups of perspectivities of A to be extended to automorphism groups of M. Given $ \left\{ {{A_\alpha },\,\alpha \, \in \,J} \right\}$, an infinite collection of s affine planes each of order s, there exist a Möbius plane M and a bijection b from J to the point set of M so that for each $ \alpha \, \in \,J,\,{M_{b\left( \alpha \right)}}$ is isomorphic to $ {A_\alpha }$.
