Nevertheless, the plane can in fact be used to execute stunts, including barrel rolls and loop-the-loops. A primary disadvantage to this plane is once you land and get out you can't get back in because the door is very high from the ground. The only way you can get back in it to find a [[Baggage]] with [[Towing#GTA San Andreas 2|a ladder]] attached to the back, land the plane at Las Venturas Airport and go to the hangar again, or find a [[Yankee]] and jump over it, using its back side as a platform. Unlike most other planes, this plane is also the only one that can be flown over [[Area 69]] with less chance of being shot down by homing missiles, providing you don't hang around. The AT-400 is also only one of two aircraft that can fly to the maximum height in the game, the other being the [[Hydra]]. Like the other planes, it can also be seen flying in the distance, but it is hard to take down the flying AT-400, even with homing rockets or kamikaze style attack. The plane is also used for [[Airports#Commercial flights|paid commercial flights]] between cities in [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]]. ==Location== As a controllable vehicle, the plane is considerably rare, appearing in only one location, inside the large airport hangar in [[Las Venturas Airport]] in [[Las Venturas]], when the player approaches from the south. Regardless, the plane does not always spawn in the hangar. == Trivia == [[Image:AT400-GTASA-parked.jpg|275px|thumb|right|A parked AT-400 at the [[Easter Bay Airport]], with a [[Utility Van]] parked nearby for comparison in size.]] * The AT-400 is the largest controllable vehicle in the game (the second is [[Tug Boat|Tug]], a boat from GTA IV), the [[Andromada]] being the third largest. Interestingly enough, when comparing their real life counterparts the cargo plane (Andromada) is actually bigger than the passenger jet (AT-400). * The AT-400's initial is similar to that of the [[Airtrain|Air Train]], a similarly sized airliner that repeatedly appears as a static prop earlier in GTA III and GTA Vice City. * Certain [[modifications]], like the "Fly Mod" and the "Anti-Material Rifle", can knock an AT-400 out of the sky but it still takes a lot of practice to bring one down even with modifications. * There is no way the AT-400 can be saved at a [[garage]], since the entrance at the aircraft hangar at [[Verdant Meadows]] is too small for the plane to fit; obviously, normal garages at [[Save Points in GTA San Andreas|safehouses]] are way too small. * Of all aircraft in GTA San Andreas, the AT-400 is the most durable of all. Even when shot from SAM sites it can withstand between 8 to 11 hits before blowing up and falling from the sky. {{Navboxes |title= Navigation |list1= {{vehicles|state=collapsed}} {{gtasa vehicles|state=collapsed}} }} [[Category:Vehicles]] [[Category:Vehicles in GTA San Andreas]] [[Category:Aircraft]] [[Category:Fixed-Wing Aircraft]] [[de:AT-400 (SA)]] [[es:AT-400]] [[fi:AT-400]] [[fr:AT-400]] [[pl:AT-400]]

Character history

Solomon Richards, the son of film mogul David Richards and an unnamed mother, grew up around the film industry through his fathers company, which he later inherits. At an unknown time he had a son of his own called Ira. In 1968 he produced Nelson in Naples and in 1973 he produced the film Rum Runner, which featured a scene stealing performance starlet Leonora Johnson with the two falling out over disparaging comments made about Solomon. He responded "Two minutes of hamming it up in a wheelchair and suddenly she thinks she’s got talent – I’ve seen brisket with more charm". This conflict later led to Solomon Richards becoming a suspect in Leonora's murder in January 1979 with Jeff Campion believing he may have been connected to the "HAM" message written on a severed piece of Leonora's thigh placed next to her corpse. The murder remained unsolved although it is almost certain that Solomon knew of a confession letter written by Dreyfuss to David Richards, a letter that Solomon's son mentions while drunk in 2013. The letter also describes Solomon as 'remorseless hack with none of your passion, your creative zeal. He's a weak livered moralizer hiding in the body of Vinewood decadent'.

Solomon took control of Richards Majestic in 1978 and continued to produced films including Vinewood Zombie in 1981 (which was later voted the worst film of 1981), An American Divorce in 1987, Arthur Penny's Sanitorium in 1994 and a film adaptation of Yuppie and the Alien. The Richards Majestic studio, under Solomon's leadership, continues to lose money, although Solomon continues to produced a 'string of remakes, rom coms and super hero pictures', which flopped at the box office, using green screen rather than on location. In 2013, while part way through shooting his latest film Meltdown and Deep Inside, he sells a significant portion of Richards Majestic to businessman Devin Weston. Solomon continues to shoot the film until Rocco Pelosi and his associate Gianni convince his lead actors to hold out for more money. This problem is solved by Michael De Santa, who is capable of recognising quotes from any of Solomon's films. When Michael kills Pelosi and Gianni, Solomon names Michael as the film's executive producer as a reward for his help.

The filming is nearly completed when Devin announces that he plans to destroy the film, which would secure an insurance pay off for the investors such as Weston. Weston hopes to 'fossilize' the last dinosaur in town and use the money to buy the studio from Solomon's son, a majority shareholder, and turn the area into condos while also avoiding tax due to the economic crisis. The plan is hatched by Molly Schultz, Devin's assistant, who takes an early negative held by Solomon, planning to leave it in a secluded offshore location. Devin, using poses by Fabien LaRouche who had a brief relationship with Michael's wife Amanda, angers Michael who then begins to chase Molly to the airport despite her police escort and airport security on Weston's payroll. Michael manages to retrieve the film after Molly is sucked into an aeroplane engine.

Solomon later informs Michael that the chase was unnecessary as they have digital backups and that he has green lit a premiere to stop Weston from attempting to destroy the film again with Solomon sending four tickets to Michael's house so his family can attend. At the premiere, Solomon and Michael celebrate their success. When Weston shows up unexpectedly and tells Michael that he sent Merryweather mercenaries to his house to kill Amanda and Tracey, Michael leaves Solomon at the premiere and, with his son Jimmy, returns home and rescues his wife and daughter.
