Vehicle stunts are incredibly possible in Grand Theft Auto 5, and they occasionally happen by mistake, like when Reddit user Jai-II-S006 was flying their aircraft above Los Santos. A missile alert nearly turned the enjoyable trip into a disaster, but miraculously the plane and the pilot managed to leave without injury. The GTA Online gods must have been smiling upon the gamer.
An unremarkable flight over Los Santos International Airport was the first segment of the player’s film, uploaded online. The beeping that indicates a homing missile is locking onto the jet eventually interrupts it. However, the anti-aircraft rocket never seems to approach the plane, possibly due to quick reflexes, good fortune, or both. Because of this, the unanticipated GTA jet stunt had a successful outcome.

The player uploaded a video to YouTube that started with a relatively uneventful flight over Los Santos International Airport. However, it is soon interrupted by an approaching missile and the beeping that indicates a homing missile has locked onto the aircraft. Fortunately, the anti-aircraft rocket never seems to catch up with the plane due to quick reflexes, good fortune, or both. Because of this, the unanticipated GTA jet stunt had a successful outcome.
Although the missile appears to hit the plane in just a few inches, it does not detonate. Instead, the rocket loses power about ten seconds later, falls off, and explodes above Los Santos International Airport, sparing the lucky player and their pricey military jet any harm. While the shooter’s decision not to self-detonate the missile undoubtedly saved the Hydra pilot’s life, turning and dodging the rocket might have helped avert death.

Despite the player’s admission that he doesn’t know who launched the missile and that at least four other players were attempting to kill them, several Reddit commentators have speculated that Chernobog, an artillery truck, may have been the missile’s creator.
