Caida Libre - Mission Details:

Michael and Trevor are summoned by Martin Madrazo, who has a job for them. The pair met at La Fuente Blanca, Madrazo's ranch in Vinewood Hills. Madrazo's cousin is thinking of testifying against him so he wants Michael and Trevor to kill him. Michael says their debt was settled but Madrazo wants him to think of it as a favour for a friend. 

He shows the pair a picture of his cousin, Javier, who is flying off to Liberty City that afternoon. Madrazo has set a gun up in the hills. He wants them to shoot down the plane and obtain some important documents. 

Michael heads to the Galileo Observatory, where the Madrazo has left a heavy rifle mounted to the rear of a van. Michael keeps an eye out for the plane and shoots the plane's engine. Michael needs to hit the plane three times for it to start to fail. The plane starts to descend and play switches to Trevor, who is now chasing the plane on a bike.

The chase takes Trevor cross country, through Great Chaparral, Harmony and Sandy Shores. The plane eventually crashes in a field just off the Senora Freeway. Trevor grabs the files and assassinates Javier. Trevor calls Michael to say the task is done. Michael wants Trevor to drop off the files then meet him to talk. After the call, play switches back to Michael, who leaves the area in the van and destroys it to cover his tracks.

After destroying the van, he receives a call from Trevor saying there's been a change of plans and to meet him at Stoner Cement Works. Michael arrives and so does Trevor not too long after. Trevor states he and Madrazo got into an argument over payment for the job. Michael asks him if he killed him, Trevor says no and walks over to the back of his car to reveal he's kidnapped Madrazo's wife Patricia instead.

Trevor suggests the pair now go into hiding while they discuss things with Madrazo. Michael gets into the car with Trevor and Patricia and drives away. The play then automatically switches to Franklin, ending the mission.
