The Airtrain is a prop that takes the appearance of a [[wp:Boeing 727|Boeing 727]]. In GTA III and GTA Vice City, the Airtrain is normally not solid. Simply spawning the Airtrain using trainers or modifications will crash the game. The Airtrain's flight path is determined by the ''flight1.dat'' file. In GTA Liberty City Stories it is solid, however, touching it (except the wings) will kill the player and destroy his vehicle. In GTA Vice City Stories it is still solid, but touching it doesn't kill the player. Instead the player will lose [[Health|health]]. In contrast to previous games it appeared in, the plane ''can ''be entered in GTA Vice City Stories due to a bug. If entered the player doesn't have any control of it, but can change the radio stations. It can also be spawned using a cheat device, although the player cannot control it if it is entered using the aforementioned bug.

The Airtrain takes the appearance of a white [[wp:Boeing 727|Boeing 727]]. In all its appearances, the airplane is featured in two different ways: Some are stationary solid props in airports and others are seen landing, taxiing and taking off. It seems to be the only kind of airliners that serve [[Francis International Airport, Shoreside Vale|Francis International Airport]] and [[Escobar International Airport]].
   
The Airtrain is consistently painted white (with different airline logos), except in GTA Vice City Stories, where it is painted white with a red tailfin and blue nose (with a [[Plummet Airlines]] logo).
+
In Grand Theft Auto III and GTA Vice City, the flying airtrains are not solid, meaning the player can go through them without taking any damage. Simply spawning the Airtrain using trainers or modifications will crash the game as it's a vehicle that only relies in a path. The Airtrain's flight path is determined by the ''flight1.dat'' file.

In GTA Liberty City Stories both the flying and parked airtrains differ from previous renditions, now having less and bigger windows, apparently an extra floor and an overall more cartoonish look. The flying versions are now solid, however, and touching their wheels will heavily injure the [[Toni Cipriani|player]] and destroy his vehicle. The player can jump on its wing and "ride" on it while it takes off, yet he will be automatically ejected into the sea a few seconds later, after reaching the game height limit. 
  +
  +
In GTA Vice City Stories it is still solid and will once again make the [[Victor Vance|player]] lose health when on contact with its wheels. While its flying version uses nearly the same model from III and Vice City, the appearance of the stationary version differs from previous games - Like in Liberty City stories, it seems to have an extra floor for it's cockpit, similar to a 747. Also, instead of being simply painted white with different airliner logos, it is now painted white with a red tailfin and blue nose (with a [[Plummet Airlines]] logo). The Airtrains that land and take off still look the same as their previous versions.
  +
  +
There are also 727-like airplanes in the [[GTA Chinatown Wars]] rendition of [[Francis International Airport, Dukes|Francis International Airport]]. They can be seen parked around the airport and taking off and landing in the runways, yet never moving from them after landing.

===Entering the Airtrain in Vice City Stories===
  +
The flying version of the plane can be entered in GTA Vice City Stories due to a bug - If the player gets on its wing while roaming around from runway to runway, and presses triangle near the meeting point between the back of the wing and the fuselage, he will be transported inside of the airplane.
  +
  +
The player doesn't have any control of the vehicle itself and can only change the radio stations while it flies on its pre-defined route over Vice City - Therefore, technically being similar to purchasing a flight in GTA San Andreas. Oddly, the player can only exit the Airtrain when its back wheels are touching the ground but not the front one, which is when it takes off and lands. It can also be spawned using a cheat device, yet is is once again uncontrollable since there is no scripted handling for it.

Airtrain-GTAVC-front

A stationary Airtrain at Escobar International Airport.

The Airtrain (name based on the model file), also known as Aeroplane (name based on the texture file) or Air Train (name based on in-game name) is a passenger airplane that appears in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

It functions as a scenery prop in all of its appearances and can only be entered (but not directly controlled) using a glitch in Vice City Stories.

DescriptionEdit

Aitrain-GTAIII

A stationary Airtrain in Grand Theft Auto III.

Airtrain-GTAVC

A stationary Airtrain in GTA Vice City.

Airtrains-GTALCS

Stationary Airtrains in GTA Liberty City Stories.

Airtrain-GTAVCS

A stationary Airtrain in GTA Vice City Stories, bearing the Plummet Airlines livery.

The Airtrain takes the appearance of a white Boeing 727. In all its appearances, the airplane is featured in two different ways: Some are stationary solid props in airports and others are seen landing, taxiing and taking off. It seems to be the only kind of airliners that serve Francis International Airport and Escobar International Airport.

In Grand Theft Auto III and GTA Vice City, the flying airtrains are not solid, meaning the player can go through them without taking any damage. Simply spawning the Airtrain using trainers or modifications will crash the game as it's a vehicle that only relies in a path. The Airtrain's flight path is determined by the flight1.dat file.

In GTA Liberty City Stories both the flying and parked airtrains differ from previous renditions, now having less and bigger windows, apparently an extra floor and an overall more cartoonish look. The flying versions are now solid, however, and touching their wheels will heavily injure the player and destroy his vehicle. The player can jump on its wing and "ride" on it while it takes off, yet he will be automatically ejected into the sea a few seconds later, after reaching the game height limit. 

In GTA Vice City Stories it is still solid and will once again make the player lose health when on contact with its wheels. While its flying version uses nearly the same model from III and Vice City, the appearance of the stationary version differs from previous games - Like in Liberty City stories, it seems to have an extra floor for it's cockpit, similar to a 747. Also, instead of being simply painted white with different airliner logos, it is now painted white with a red tailfin and blue nose (with a Plummet Airlines logo). The Airtrains that land and take off still look the same as their previous versions.

There are also 727-like airplanes in the GTA Chinatown Wars rendition of Francis International Airport. They can be seen parked around the airport and taking off and landing in the runways, yet never moving from them after landing.

Entering the Airtrain in Vice City StoriesEdit

The flying version of the plane can be entered in GTA Vice City Stories due to a bug - If the player gets on its wing while roaming around from runway to runway, and presses triangle near the meeting point between the back of the wing and the fuselage, he will be transported inside of the airplane.

The player doesn't have any control of the vehicle itself and can only change the radio stations while it flies on its pre-defined route over Vice City - Therefore, technically being similar to purchasing a flight in GTA San Andreas. Oddly, the player can only exit the Airtrain when its back wheels are touching the ground but not the front one, which is when it takes off and lands. It can also be spawned using a cheat device, yet is is once again uncontrollable since there is no scripted handling for it.
