It’s finally here, the guide you’ve all been waiting for. After spending much time listing off all the other expensive things you can buy in GTA Online, from clothes to motorcycles, from cars to helicopters, we get to the most mouth-watering, mind-blowingly costly items of all, the planes.
Each of the ones listed here is going to cost you an arm and a leg, and maybe even a kidney, there’s no getting away from that fact, but they are worth every single dollar that you’ve spent your time stealing and saving. Whether you’re a CEO, a President of your own MC, or just an average Joe with money to burn you’re going to want to rule the skies in style and comfort and occasionally with some serious fire-power. So get yourself to the Los Santos Flight School and push your skills to the maximum as you’re not going to want to miss out on these beauties.
10 Most Expensive Planes Money Can Buy In Grand Theft Auto Online
Buckingham Luxor Deluxe
When Frank Sinatra sang ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ there is no doubt that Old Blue Eyes had the Buckingham Luxor Deluxe in mind. This 326 mph, $10,000,000, golden piece of machinery is the perfect way to flaunt your wealth in the face of everybody else in-game. It seats eight so you and your crew can travel in style and comfort as you laugh at the peasants below. Just be careful how you handle this bad boy though, as any insurance claim you have to make because you flew into the side of a mountain isn’t going to be cheap.
JoBuilt P-996 Lazer
When you’ve grown tired of mocking all the poor people that you fly over in Los Santos, then you can jump into your JoBuilt P-996 Lazer and blow the living hell out of them for fun instead. This jet is guaranteed to make a statement as well as an impact as you rain down hell-fire on anyone you feel like with little fear of retribution, that is unless one of them happens to have a version of the JoBuilt P-996 Lazer themselves. If they do, then you can be sure you’re about to get into a dogfight and who doesn’t want that?
It may be an unwieldy behemoth and have the turning circle of a goddamn cathedral, but the RM-10 Bombushka does allow you to pretend that this is WW II and you’re about to give the Nazi’s what for. As long as you remember to load up on the requisite weaponry, you can carpet bomb the living bejesus out of anything that takes your fancy. Just don’t expect to be able to maneuver out of the way of any incoming missiles. This thing would struggle to move out of the way of a toddler with a water pistol if truth be told.
Let’s be honest here folks; the Mammoth Tula is one ugly vehicle. Seriously, I’ve seen better-looking things floating in my toilet bowl the morning after a night on the lash. If you’re looking to move weight on any of your illicit smuggling runs, then the Mammoth Tula is the way to go. It’ll shift at 250 mph so you should be able to keep one step ahead of anyone that comes after you and it has a couple of pretty tasty guns strapped to its nose, but jeez, that is a face that only a mother could love. If she was blind.
Say what you like about Communism but them damn Reds sure knew how to build a mighty fine jet. In GTA Online instead of the MIG fighter, we get the V-65 Molotok, and it’s a beast of a vehicle. It’ll get you to 329 mph as soon as you pull on the throttle and it’s nippy enough to handle the sharpest turns and banks you perform as you cut through the skies like a knife through hot butter.
The Buckingham Pyro is a strange hybrid of a fighter plane and luxury model. It looks like something that you can take to the fanciest of airports, landing so you can exit in style into your limo and then onto your yacht and at the same time it looks like it could do some serious damage if the mood takes you. It’s also another one that falls into the 329 mph category so it will get you where you need to go lickity-split. After all, there are so many people to kill but so little time.
What is there to say about the Mammoth Hydra other than it goes like spit, can turn on a dime, and will strike the fear of God into anyone that it chases down to the point they’ll probably soil themselves. Hey, you try writing a half dozen of these guides and not run out of steam somewhere along the line.
The B-11 Strikeforce is a big old unit with enough weaponry attached to it to make it a war-crime in the making and has a badonkadonk on it that’d make a Kardashian jealous. It’s quick as well at 329 mph but handles like it’s caught itself in its fly so you might want to have a certain amount of skill available to you when it comes to piloting this beast.
Let’s call a spade a spade here shall we folks. The Volatol is GTA Online’s version of a stealth bomber, and if you deck it out in black, then it looks the business. It may only do 250 mph, but it’s armed to the teeth and more than happy to help you rampage your way across the Los Santos map until you jam it into the ground because you weren’t paying attention to what you were doing. Don’t worry about it; we’ve all been there.
There seems to have been an unwritten rule when Rockstar was coming up with the Smuggler’s Run update, and that was that every vehicle involved had to be as ugly as a sack of crap that had been set on fire and then smooshed into the ground with a hammer and the LF-22 Starling is no different. Like the Mammoth Tula before it, it’s the perfect tool for the job when it comes to busing illicit goods around Los Santos. Just be thankful for the first-person mode, at least that way you don’t have to look at the damned thing until you get out of it.
