I haven't really seen airplanes being discussed a whole lot lately, (whether I'm blind and they have been and I'm stupid, or it's not a popular subject), and I thought it would be interesting to bring up. I absolutely LOVED being able to fly airplanes in SA. After I finished the storyline, I would always find a jet and just zip around the map. When you first try and fly them, they were kind of funky to control, but after you got use to them, they were a great mean of travel.
Now in GTAIV, R* decided not to add flyable airplanes due to the small map - completely understandable. We haven't been able to fly planes in the new Rage engine in the HD era yet, and I think it will be awesome to fly them in a more realistic fashion. I can't wait to see how they control in GTAV!
Edit: Now we've seen plane's in action. Pretty f*cking sexy:
