The [[Buckingham]] '''Swift''' is a two person shuttle-civilian helicopter featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s second [[Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City|episode]], ''[[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]'' and in [[The San Andreas Flight School Update]] for ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''.
   
The '''Swift''' is a two person shuttle-civilian helicopter featured in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'s second episode, [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]].

==Design==

The helicopter is heavily based on the [[wp:AgustaWestland AW109|AgustaWestland AW109]] and some details are similar to the [[wp:Bell 222|Bell 222]], such winglets on the tail, vents near the rotor, etc.
   
==Description==

The GTA V rendition features a retractable landing gear system just like its real-life counterpart. Working lamps have also been added to the sides. The windscreen is now of a lighter tint, and its signature white blades have been replaced by the standard black rotor-blades of all helicopters in GTA V. Slide doors can be opened and closed, unlike TBOGT.

The official website of The Ballad of Gay Tony describes the Swift as "the preferred method of transport for Liberty City high-fliers", a "turbo-shaft powered" aircraft that "shuttles its precious cargo in speed and comfort"

==Performance==

In terms of performance, the Swift is slightly faster and more maneuverable than other large helicopters, such as the [[Maverick]].
   
The design of the helicopter is seemingly a cross between the [[wp:AgustaWestland AW109|AgustaWestland AW109]] and the [[wp:Bell 222|Bell 222/230]]. The general design is from the AgustaWestland; the helicopter borrows the Bell's engine scoop design and the design for the end of its tail; the additional turbo intakes and the winglets seem inspired from the fictional attack helicopter [[wp:Airwolf (helicopter)|Airwolf]], an advanced stealth helicopter (which also a modified Bell 222 for [[wp:Airwolf|the 1984-1987 TV show of the same name]]).[[File:Swift_livery.png|thumb]]

Combined with the fact that he owns the helicopter, and wears the jacket, Santo Capro might be a company that the Amir estate runs.

Elitás Travel description

The Buckingham Swift is a two person shuttle-civilian helicopter featured in Grand Theft Auto IV's second episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony and in The San Andreas Flight School Update for Grand Theft Auto V.

DesignEdit

The helicopter is heavily based on the AgustaWestland AW109 and some details are similar to the Bell 222, such winglets on the tail, vents near the rotor, etc.

The GTA V rendition features a retractable landing gear system just like its real-life counterpart. Working lamps have also been added to the sides. The windscreen is now of a lighter tint, and its signature white blades have been replaced by the standard black rotor-blades of all helicopters in GTA V. Slide doors can be opened and closed, unlike TBOGT.

PerformanceEdit

In terms of performance, the Swift is slightly faster and more maneuverable than other large helicopters, such as the Maverick.

The Swift appears to be less resilient than other helicopters in GTA V; a hard landing almost always causes the tail to break off.

LocationsEdit

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

  • The Swift is available at the west Algonquin helipad near the West River during the beginning of the game to the end of the game. After the completion of the game, the Gold Buzzard will replace the Swift instead.

Obtaining after game's completionEdit

Swift with side doors closed

From the "Missions" menu on Luis' phone, choose the mission Caught with your Pants Down and meet Yusuf Amir at Star Junction. Get in his helicopter and fly to any GTA IV/TLAD/TBoGT safehouse and land the helicopter in the parking space. Immediately kill Amir and the player. The mission will fail, spawning Luis at the hospital. The Swift will now be at that current safehouse for you to obtain.

The player can also obtain the Swift with side doors closed by doing the club management mission featuring Bruce Spade. You can either complete the mission and keep the helicopter, or kill Bruce and fly away. Take it to any parking space to save. The player can't, however, redo club missions after they are completed, so it's only available at one point.

Swift with side doors open

From the "missions" menu on Luis' phone, select the mission ...Blog This! and meet Gay Tony at the helipad. Immediately kill Tony and then The Celebinator (killing The Celebinator first will fail the mission and Tony will fly away). The mission will fail and the player will now have a Swift at your disposal. Save it at any parking space if you want to keep it.

GTA VEdit

  • Available on the protagonists' helipads after downloading the DLC. Can spawn either in black or in the Flying Bravo livery.
