Franklin meets Dom at the Los Santos International Airport. After a brief cutscene, the two mount Blazer quads and drive onto the airport's tarmac. Franklin follows Dom up the ramp of a rolling cargo plane. Once both are inside, the plane takes off.
After a brief dialogue sequence, the player regains control of Franklin still on the Blazer in the plane's cargo holf. Franklin and Dom drive out of the plane and engage in aerial acrobatics using the quads. Franklin can abandon the quad at any time. Assuming he survives the jump, he meets Dom on the southwestern shore of the Alamo Sea. After another brief cutscene, Dom takes off on a Seashark and the mission ends.
Gold Medal Objectives
- Dive Bomber - Survive a water landing without opening the parachute
- Do not get off the ATV at all; Franklin can survive crashing into the water but only while on the vehicle. Using Franklin's special ability just before landing will reduce damage taken, but isn't necessary.
- It is advised to carry full health and armor as there is a minor chance of killing Franklin upon landing on the water.
- Sky Blazer - Perform 8 flips on the Blazer.
- The player can perform more than 8 flips. Holding forward allows for quicker flips than backwards, and rolling sideways doesn't count.
- Dom Beasley - "I'd send you the bill for our playdate today but it would bankrupt you! :-) Seriously dude how next-level was that? I bet there aren't many guys in your neighborhood who can say they've driven a quad bike out of a plane???"
- This mission and Minor Turbulence are the only two missions in GTA V where the Cargo Plane appears.
- The beginning of this mission is very similar to the mission Stowaway from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, as both missions involve chasing a moving cargo plane (in this case the Andromada) with a vehicle and driving it up the plane's ramp. The take-off cutscenes are also similar.
- During the trip for the Cargo Plane, a Jet is seen from a side of the runway which, compared to normal gameplay, is rather uncommon.
- Completing this mission unlocks the Skydiving outfit for Franklin to wear in free roam.
- As with the previous mission, actually landing in the landing zone is not necessary to complete the mission; in fact for the Gold Medal, Franklin actually needs to land in the water.
