I’ve owned both for years and I reach for the belt sander far more often that I do for the plane (so much so that I would make anyone a good deal on buying the plane I own). IMHO you’ll get a lot more money out of the belt sander. So unless there is something very specific you need that a belt sander just won’t do, I’d recommend the sander ahead of an electric plane.
