Andrew Noops' Legendary DODO flight
I found the guy who got the record-length flight in the Dodo. He is Andrew Noops (he's on some other GTA3 site).
He does not have a website any more, but the pictures are posted on a image site somewhere.
Here are the links:
In flight - looping
Crash land - he said it wasnt his best landing ever, but he did go for 49 hours.
The flight time
Close up confirmation

He got as a prize a signed box and CD of the game:

The box is signed by the lead analyst of the GTA3 team.

So, his time was 176488 seconds. That makes 2941 minutes, 49.02 hours, or 2 days and 1 hours of continuous flight. All on a PS2, so I think we can all say that this is definately a fake. These photos would be impossible to fake.

Anyone willing to challenge him (and in GTA3, not VC - the plane is a helluva lot easier to fly in GTAVC)? :wink2:

BTW - I am not Andrew Noops - I can barely fly the bloody dodo.

Man, that's so amazing that it's almost scary. I wonder how he was able to do it for two days. He must have a boring life. :p

My theory is that he would have flown all day, then gone to sleep and paused the game.
Otherwise, he would have had heaps of coffee and red bull to keep him going that long.

...though he did figure out a way to keep the timer going when the game was paused.

Zidane 06-29-2004 02:21 PM

Yeah. I think he could have.

And what's this about a competition? I didn't know R* held one.

wow thats way to long i'll just forget about it and land

It's easily possible, I could do it if I had to. The challenge isn't flying the Dodo it is fighting boredom and your daily life. I do two laps around the city and get bored and land. I'm guessing he paused it while he slept.

I remember back to the days of the bastard Dodo on the PS2 how it frustrated thousands and many thought it was impossible to fly, though some were gifted enough to fly it. The best part was the look on my brother's face the first time I showed him and how he was very angry at me for making it look so easy. He said "How the hell are you flying it, you fly it like its a real plane, that's not even possible!" Haha :angel:

I flew the dodo also a few hours in GTA 3 on the PC. Somehow i had leveled the plain perfectley and it just kept flying in a straight line and bounced of the and of the game perfectley straight to the other border of the game. I just put a srewdriver in the keybord and went to school

Mad Max 07-09-2004 09:52 AM

Flying the dodo in pc version is easy if you now how to fly it and you get the hang of it.

Captain Murphy 07-09-2004 09:30 PM

it's not hard to get 49 hours. he didn't sit there for a day straight, all he did was fly a few hours each day then pause till he was ready to fly again. it'd take like a week but it wouldn't be hard to do.
