Wu Zi Mu: "My men found that van you were looking for, by the helipad Downtown."
CJ: "And Toreno?"
Wu Zi Mu: "Yep, he's there. Apparently he's about to take some merchandise and cut by helicopter."
Wu Zi Mu tells Carl Johnson that he's located Mike Toreno

Toreno's Last Flight is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by San Fierro Triads leader Wu Zi Mu from Carl's garage in the Doherty district of San Fierro, San Andreas.


Mike Toreno escaped death when Carl and Cesar Vialpando killed T-Bone Mendez and Ryder, but Wu Zi Mu has tracked Toreno down to a Maverick helicopter at the SFPD headquarters.

Carl drives to Downtown and sees Toreno's men guarding the Maverick. Carl kills Toreno's guards and as he approaches the Maverick, it takes off with Toreno on board. Carl collects a Rocket Launcher and/or an AK-47. The Maverick flies off south with Carl in pursuit. Carl shoots the Maverick out of the sky and kills everyone on board.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Toreno's boarding a helicopter at a helipad nearby. Get there and stop him
  • The helicopter's airborne! Get that rocket launcher to bring it down
  • Get on to that freeway and shoot that helicopter down


The rewards this mission are $18,000 and an increase in respect. If the mission The Da Nang Thang is done, then the mission Yay Ka-Boom-Boom is unlocked.


  • Don't worry about getting a wanted level while chasing the helicopter, as it will be cleared once the mission is completed.
  • One easy way to complete the mission is to quickly drive to the end of the highway (staying close enough so as not to lose the helicopter), get out, and wait for the helicopter. Once it reaches the end of the highway, it will hover in place for a few seconds and fire at the player, giving them an opportunity to shoot it down.
  • It's also possible to take down the helicopter immediately after it takes off with a Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher (at this point obtainable only at Easter Bay International Airport; one will have to climb a tall vehicle to get over the airport's gates or drop down into the airport from northern Flint County and find the weapon in between the fuel canisters).
  • The easiest way to complete this mission is having Carl use a Minigun as soon as the helicopter takes off, despite the objective telling the player to obtain the Rocket Launcher, although the helicopter can destroyed by any means.


Video Walkthroughs



  • At some point during the chase, the helicopter will drop Toreno's bodyguards at the Flint County safehouse (the player will be warned that there is an ambush), then, it will fly away, giving the player only a few seconds to destroy it.
  • The helicopter is impervious to damage until it takes off. Therefore, the mission cannot be completed by hitting the helicopter with a rocket before the cutscene of it taking off.
  • On the mobile version, if the player closes the game once the helicopter takes off, the mission will be completed if the player re-opens the game because the helicopter will despawn and the game will register it as destroyed.
  • Toreno's bodyguards are the same model as pedestrians that are seen walking around Vinewood in Los Santos.
