Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Online issued The Last Dose update on March 16, 2023, drawing fans to their gaming consoles and PCs in large numbers. We embarked on a quest to end the Los Santos Drug Wars through five thrilling and challenging missions. The final mission of the DLC update, BDKD, was a high-octane pursuit as players trailed Dr. Isiah Friedlander's cargo jet in the Velum.
While Friedlander vanished as quickly as he returned to the franchise, we were left at the pinnacle of the psychedelics trade in Los Santos. If players want to replicate the exhilaration of the climactic Last Dose mission, here are five of the fastest planes in the game since the current update based on their top speed.
