Grand Theft Auto has a wide variety of different vehicles for its community to try out and a team of players has come together to create something quite special in GTA Online, pulling off an unbelievable air show that even the Red Arrows would be proud of. 

The Red Arrows are more formally known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team in the United Kingdom, pulling off some incredible and beautiful air stunts with speed, agility and precision. Now, that same energy has somehow crossed over to GTA.

Rockstar Games are always adding new ways to play in Los Santos and the wider areas on the GTA 5 map, whether it be new cars, bikes, or even helicopters added in frequent content updates. However, the real creativity often comes from those who jump into the game and put such features to good use, and it’s fair to say a team of in-game pilots has done just that.

GTA Online players have been creating some insane air shows in-game.

It’s always a challenge to do something fresh in a game like Grand Theft Auto. There might be so many different options at your disposal, but many players just jump into the game, ride around in their cars and buy houses. Yet, if there was a gap in creativity it has certainly been filled.

Posting their showcase of plane skills to the GTA subreddit on March 18, user Bmancowtan posted: “Ever seen a GTA Airshow?” followed by an incredible piece of footage, showing seven different jets moving in unison with striking colored-smoke coming from their tail ends. The jets are V-65 Molotoks and are available to buy in-game for almost $5 million, so it’s definitely an expensive hobby.

Flashes of blue, red and yellow could be seen in the sky as the septet breezed over the water, with the sun setting just behind. This can be seen in the post below.

The group of players call themselves ‘The Red Sparrows’ and often post this sort of stuff to their YouTube channel, with recent videos including air show competitions with in-game cash up for grabs in the rewards, as well as other GTA related content.

The breathtaking video shared with the subreddit, however, was given a huge nod by other members of the community, too, which also joined in with comments in the Reddit thread. A user posted: “Finally a fresh take on this game! Love it.” While another said: “I have not said holy sh*t about this game in a long time – whoah.”

Will you try to make your own air show next time the sun sets in GTA Online? It’s certainly a challenge.

Another comment that’s well worth a mention came from Temporary_Cold, who joked: “The ocean, the sunset, The inspiring teamwork, the poetic double helix signifying life’s profundity. It’s almost enough to bring a tear of j.. Whooooshh as 3 oppressor griefers whiz into frame.

With the Reddit post surging in popularity and their YouTube channel drawing thousands of views, there’s no doubt we’ll see more from this team of players in the future.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
