GTA 3 had a plane that more glided than flew, GTA vice city had one plane. GTA SA had planes cuz the map was soo freaking huge and helped get around. GTA 4 is going for a more realistic feel and you wont need planes to get around and you have a helicopter if you really want to fly. Whats with all these people crying so much over there being no Planes, it didnt freaking make the game great. Its called grand theft auto not grand theft airo or whatever it is called.
