To print a plot part way through a computation, do:

Print[plota];

Prior  to version 6, the Plot functions effectively contained a Print, 
so they appeared at once, but this was often quite inflexible and 
inconsistent with the rest of Mathematica - hence the change.

To get a column, use:

Column[{
"something",
plota,
"something else",
plotb
}]
