Abstract: We consider two families of plane partitions: totally symmetric self-complementary plane partitions (TSSCPPs) and cyclically symmetric transpose complement plane partitions (CSTCPPs). If T(n) and C(n) are the numbers of such plane partitions in a 2n × 2n × 2n box, then

ord2(T(n)) = ord2(C(n))

for all n >= 1. We also discuss various consequences, along with other results on ord2(T(n)).
