I've got into the routine of spawning, getting out the jetpack, flying to the airport, getting in a jet, then taunting the harrier. Great fun for all. Haven't unlocked many planes yet though - I want to fly the Mustang!!!

Ooh, where's the Jumbo Jet? I've been to all the airports. Actually, I probably missed it because I was a pixel away from the terrible pop-up throwing the whole thing into view at once. Don't you just hate it when you get in the lear jet and you crash into an invisible tree or bridge?

AND, I haven't unlocked any of the bridges yet (hardly played the actual game) - is there a motorbike fast enough on the Las Venturas bit to make that huge jump over the canyon? The Sanchez and Wayfarer can't do it, neither can the ATVs. I got a PGJ thingy, but that couldn't either. do you have to use that one on Easter Bay Arport?

No, what was bad was watching my fellow Air Training Corp Cadets fly the 747 into the Twin Towers on Flight Sim 2000.

Took you long enough.
There's loads of them around the place.

Found the jumbo jet yet?
It really is massive, and terrible fun to fly. I really couldn't resist some terrorism on that massive building in Los Santos - with last-second bailing + parachute.

Am I bad person?

The worst thing is, once you unlock all of those planes by getting the license, they disappear.

Like flying a car, and they take off almost instantly. I could fly the Dodo for hours in GTA3, but I suppose it makes the game more accessible. Finally got in a helicopter yesterday - woohah!
