Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
Consider that a show of airplanes has just been performed.
So, in this contexto, would it make sense to say:
"This was a day ended on a high."

This was a day that ended on a high note.

Yes. It would also be kind of funny. Airplanes fly high and the day was fun.
But a better phrasing would be: 'this was a day that ended on a high note'.

That's grammatically incorrect. What you have is two clauses:
This was a day
The day ended on a high.
You can combine them by turning the second into an adjective clause. That substitutes the pronoun "that" for the noun "day". When the pronoun is the subject of the verb, you can't delete it.
This was a day that ended on a high.
When the pronoun replaces the object of the verb, it can be deleted.
This was a day.
I enjoyed the day.
This was a day that I enjoyed.
This was a day I enjoyed.
