Try turning off the frame limiter. If that still won't work, post a SNP request.
Also, be sure to have high Bike Skill, Bike School can help.

EDIT: Found a tip about Stowaway written by crazyanurag in the past. It says this:

QUOTE (crazyanurag on May 1 2006 @ 05:09)

1) play with these Display Settings:

  • Frame Limiter: Off

  • Anti-Aliasing: Off

  • Visual FX Quality: Low

  • Resolution: 640x480x16

  • Draw Distance: Medium

2) high Bike Skill: many contibutors to this forum have stated that a high Bike Skill(75% and above) makes this mission simpler...to increase Bike Skill, one should complete the Bike School in Blackfield, Las Venturas

3) the 'Head-Bobbing Trick': to catch the plane, the 'head-bobbing' trick has to be performed by holding the Accelerate button, and tapping the Steer Forward button...button configurations are found in Options>Controller Options>Redefine Controls>Vehicle Controls

4) once inside the plane, do not use firearms; when the Satchel is placed, jump out of the plane, and simultaneously detonate the charge

With the dynamite:
Don't use the motorcycle to get away.
Just kill the guards, back the armoured truck up to the gate and jump on it to het out. If CJ is too fat he can't jump.
If it's the first part you're having trouble with...Driving the huge dumper is used to crush the boxes to get the sticks. kill all the workers.
I have also used the copter to get into and out of the pit, it may take a little trying to get it to stay with you.
Use the sniper-rifle to kill the guys at the detonator, if that's the problem.

Sub-missions: The Prime are Burglary and Firefighting.
I did them easily enough in the centre of Los Santos. You still get to keep the money even if you fail!
The Vigilante I wait until after flying school, to use the Rhino.

Best houses are the ones right next to Big Smoke's House.
Park close next to the one on the corner as it has three items to steal. Don't move fast enough to trip the alarm, easy does it. Use the other house only to reset the first house should you trip the alarm/or get all the items. Going back and forth between the two is all you need.
On the driving missions, go cross country, drive over anyone in the way. Once the fire is out they don't mean anything. DON'T hit cops or their vehicles.

You can take chances with the Amb. and Fire T. up to about mission level 7, like driving over cliffs, etc. after that the game will try to fail you.

Stowaway is known to be problematic on laggy systems.
One method that always works is to get a minigun before starting the mission: http://www.gtasanand...0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0

When you're prompted to get on the plane just unmount the bike and destroy the plane with the minigun.
Then you have all the time in the world to get to the ramp and continue the mission.
