An unknown private jet was cut from Grand Theft Auto V.


The private jet is only seen twice; it first appears during Michael's trailer[1], seen in the background during scenes from Legal Trouble with its distinctive green and white paintjob. Its second appearance is on the in-game image of the Shamal on Elitas Travel. The image is no longer viewable in-game as the website has been updated several times since the game's release, however the original image of the Shamal depicts the plane in the background.

Identical private jets are seen as background props in Max Payne 3, a video game also developed by Rockstar Games.


The jet looks similar to the Ghawar in The Ballad of Gay Tony, albeit with a different paint job and two jet engines. Unlike most private jets within the series, it does not feature a T-tail.

At least three liveries seem to have been available: one of the jet's in the Shamal's picture is taxiing in a green livery, and one in blue, parked behind the Shamal. During its appearance in Michael's trailer, the plane appears to have a green tail and white fuselage, slightly different from the livery seen on the Shamal picture.

The combination of rear mounted twin jet engines on the fuselage and horizontal stabilizer positioning would seem to indicate the Falcon 2000 or Citation Sovereign may have been the design inspiration, although this jet would appear to be larger than both of these. Its wing as seen from the front and the lightly discernible cockpit makes it resemble the Caravelle, or a JetStar.

The final level of Rockstar Games' Max Payne 3 features similar looking jets as background props, distinctively featuring the same body, wings and engine configuration, but bearing a different livery and featuring winglets. The fact that some aesthetic alterations were performed on the model implies it wasn't just a temporary placeholder, but it's still possible to have merely been a scenic prop like in Max Payne 3.
