Bombs Away! is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by Haitian gang leader Auntie Poulet from her home in Little Haiti, Vice City.


Auntie Poulet wants Tommy to destroy a fleet of Cuban boats that are used to traffic drugs. She drugs Tommy and instructs him to enter a Top Fun van nearby to use RC Barons to drop bombs over the Cubans on Starfish Island. Tommy remotely pilots the RC Baron and manages to destroy all the Cuban boats and kill any Cubans who witnessed this event.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get to the van that contains the flying bombs.
  • Destroy the Cuban boat fleet.
  • The Cubans are making a run for it. Don't let them get away.


The reward for completing this mission is $ 2,000 and the mission Dirty Lickin's is unlocked.


  • There is a glitch where after the cutscene right before controlling the RC plane it is possible to get out when that cutscene perishes then it is possible to drive to the place and kill everyone and destroy the vehicles and pass the mission. The Cubans do not attack back when this happens. This is only confirmed in the PC version.
  • The Top Fun van is unmovable all the time during the mission progress, even after completing the mission, it cannot be driven out of the lawn nor moved by Tommy. This was fixed in the mobile version, however, where the player is able to drive the Top Fun away.
  • The RC Baron in this mission is extremely difficult to fly because it has a big heavy bomb under the belly. On top of that, judging when the boat is below and how to "lead" the Cuban boats is quite difficult since the camera angle does not go that far above the plane, making this mission quite difficult to complete.
    • Instead, use the RC Baron to carefully push each Cuban into the water before bombing the boats. This may take patience.
    • It is also possible to use the RC plane to bump the Cubans to their deaths, although this trick will take a long time.
