it looks an awful lot to me like user posted imagethis model is just a static model and not a flyable vehicle.....jets have been confirmed right?? so why have they followed Vice, GTAIII and LCS without making the Shamal flyable??

Yeah, you've got a point, it reminds me of the fake unflyable planes in GTA3. But then again, it could just look like that due to the way the screenshot was taken confused.gif .

But yeah, you have a very good point, it doesn't look much like the ones that we're flyable in San Andreas. But you never know...

You never know. You never see the doors open on one of those models in GTA 3, VC or LCS.

Yes, but we haven't actually seen it open, the way we see it there is it's already open. Some of the planes in VC I believe had open doors.

I think this is probably a cutscene... And Victor goes into the learjet to talk to someone and get a mission... It explains why the doors are open.

The windows arent transparent (probably meaning it's not flyable). Perhaps we'll see it land/take off, like with the Airliner jets.

Yes you do. In one of Donald Love's missions called "Morgue Party Ressurection". You see a jet almost identical to that one, with the door open too.

It's probably cutscene only, like the Donald Love plane in LCS.

That right, it does look like a cutscene, and that also account for why Ken is standing next to the plane.

Yeah, the plane in that picture doesn't look flyable and it doesn't look too much like a Shamal (Then again, this is 1984)...So maybe that plane in the picture isn't a Shamal. I think this because I've heard that Shamals are supposedly in the game as flyable transportation.

Mabey we can fly planes like the shamal but this is just a cut scene because it has been stated that "JETS" are flyable

As the pictures are from an IGN preview, I am sure if they got to fly a plane they would have mentioned it. Planes will not be flyable, I think that's easy to say.

You may be talking about that plane in the screenshot but the Skimmer has been confirmed and it's a plane.

I really don't think flyable jets will be in the game. If you look at that screenshot you can tell it's been taken from a cutscene and the texture of the jet looks horrible. confused.gif

Yep it is DEFINATELY unflyable (well that one at least). There is no way that could be a flyable Shamal. Vehicles have different modelling to.. to... that!

And besides... it's much too big if you look carefully..

I thought it looked similar. But I wasn't going to replay LCS to find out. tounge.gif

Shamal's have been confirmed flyable, just so you know.

So that's probably NOT a shamal. Probably just cutscene only. wink.gif

Maybe it's a shamal, maybe it's not. If it is a shamal, maybe it's just the draw distance, and if it isn't a shamal, it's probabaly, an unflyable plane in a cut scene.

A Shamal looks different if you look close on it in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. But maybe it's a Shamal in the 1980s.

I'm not totaly sure if it's flyable or not. But somehting is telling me that this one isn't. Perhaps an other plane.
