Grand Theft Auto 5 – McKenzie Airfield Arms Trafficking Air Mission: The Train and Boat Bombing Run
In this video, we will guide you through the fourth Grand Theft Auto 5 story mode mission: The Train and Boat Bombing Run. This mission is a part of the Arms Trafficking Air mission series that features five unique missions that are great for maximizing your cash. The first five missions are all once-off, so it’s worth investing time to complete them with bonuses. From the sixth mission onwards, you will rotate between three standard drop missions.
To successfully complete this mission, you need to complete it with all bonuses intact. Although there is no gold for this mission, it can be a little challenging to complete it with all bonuses intact. In this guide, we will show you how to master this mission with ease.
Starting the Mission
When you start the mission, pull out of the hangar as soon as possible by yanking the stick to get the Cuban moving. Once you’re in the air, pull up and bank left. Gear up by clicking G on your keyboard or the left thumbstick for PlayStation and Xbox.
You need to go straight across the Los Santos County line and line yourself up with the railway tracks. To avoid eyeballing, use your mini-map for targeting. Give yourself plenty of room when lining up with the railway tracks. As soon as you get close to the train, drop the bomb.
Bombing the Train and Boats
After bombing the train, gain some altitude and bank around to the right. You need to fly over the gaps in-between the mountains towards the bridge that leads to the boats. Once again, it can be challenging to eyeball the boats, so use your minimap to guide you. Consider easing off the gas as you make your approach to slow the plane down to avoid crashing it. Drop the bombs once you are sure that you are over the boats.
Heading Back to the Airfield
Gaining altitude, fly above the eddies, and head back to the airfield. Since you’re on this side of the airfield, you don’t need to bank too hard. Line yourself up straight-on with the airfield to save time. Gear down by clicking G on your keyboard, or your left thumbstick on PlayStation and Xbox.
By now, you are probably coming in a bit too hot, but you can still work with it. Steer towards the hanger and drop it down, ensuring that you don’t get caught in the mud. No matter your speed or how hard you hit the hanger, it will slow you down immediately. You’ll skid to a stop, and you’ll have passed the mission with full bonuses within four minutes.
