The Dodo is an Easter egg in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V.


The Dodo is an aeroplane which is half-winged. It is the only plane in the whole game. With a lot of patience and practice, the player should have no problem flying it. 

Flying the Dodo is the only way to reach the Ghost Town and view Hidden Game Designers' Names without using mods.

For years, there were rumors that the wings were cut after the September 11th attacks, but in actual truth, Rockstar stated:

Because we were making a driving and shooting game - even that, as a combination of core gameplay elements, was very, very radical at the time. The Dodo was never meant to be flown very much at all, and it certainly wasn’t grounded as a result of 9/11 – it was just a fun thing that people then went crazy with when they figured out various bugs that let them fly it!

How to Fly It

Step 1

Line the plane up at the end of the runway. Gain speed and make the plane lean forward until you see sparks to appear.

Step 2

Once the sparks appear stop leaning forward and you will see the plane begin to take off. Immediately make the plane level with the ground when you are in the air. After that the plane will move forward somewhat and begin to descend. Do not worry this is normal. After descending a little bit the plane will begin to rise automatically.

Step 3

Now to keep the plane flying all you need to do is to lean the plane forward every so often when the nose begins to raise too high. Just make sure you keep the plane at full speed and never lean the plane upwards. If that is done (whether intentionally or unintentionally) the plane will plummet to the ground.


  • The plane is based off of a Cessna 172, with the absence of wheel cover and only being half-winged
