Minor Turbulence - Mission Details:

Franklin heads to Michael's house, looking for him. When he notices the house is empty, he gives Michael a call. Michael answers and explains to Franklin that he and Trevor have to lay low for a while due to Trevor kidnapping Madrazo's wife Patricia.

After the call ends, Trevor introduces Ron to Michael and Patricia. Trevor asks Ron about how business is going for Trevor Philips Enterprises. It's not been going well but Ron thinks he's on to something to do with Merryweather. They have a big cache of weapons coming in via plane and Ron thinks Trevor might want to requisition it.

Trevor is delighted with the news. Michael wants in but Trevor tells him to stay behind as he's a wanted man and just takes Ron with him. Trevor and Ron head to the McKenzie Airfield. Trevor doesn't want to deal with Merryweather on the ground so he gets in a Duster to meet them in the air.

Trevor finds the cargo plane and follows it, staying close to the ground so he doesn't alert the plane as they're in restricted airspace. Trevor follows the plane through Paleto Bay and back into Sandy Shore. Once out of military airspace, Trevor starts gaining altitude so he can get closer to the plane.

As Trevor gets closer to the plane, the pilot orders Trevor to divert his course otherwise they'll be forced to shoot him down. Trevor ignores the planes warnings and keeps tailing. The pilot opens the back of the plane so Merryweather guards can shoot Trevor down but Trevor flies into the back of the plane, crashing his Duster and giving him an opening to get onboard.

Once onboard, Trevor deals with the Merryweather guards while making his way towards the cockpit. Once there, he takes out the pilot and takes control of the plane. Trevor attempts to land the plane at McKenzie Field but is intercepted by US Air Force fighter jets, who are aware that the plane has been hijacked. Trevor is told to change course to Fort Zancuado otherwise the jets will engage.

Trevor ignores the warnings, causing the jets to engage and destroy one of the engines. With the plane now going down, Trevor aborts the plane, jumping from the back and using a parachute to land safely. Trevor watches on as the plane crashes into the Alamo Sea. The mission ends once Trevor gets to ground.
