More about the Thomson Scrapyard area
Once players enter Thomson Scrapyard, the first thing they will notice is two wrecked aircraft. According to GTA Online’s events, the two jets were manufactured by:
FlyUS – An in-game parody airline of real-life US Airways (American Airlines)
Herler Airlines – An in-game airline inspired by classic British Airways (1984-1997)
Players can enter the Air Herler cabin; however, it will be partially blocked as neither of the jets is intended to be interactive or usable in any way. Many wrecked Mallards can also be seen in the area, with vertical stabilizers, detached wings, and deformed bodies. Scrapped cars are also available in the scrapyard, along with a Lando-Corp Scrap Handler located at the southern fence of the area.
To keep the scrapyard vibes alive, the whole area is closed off with two functioning gates serving as entrances. It is assumed that the whole area is based on the Victorville airplane graveyard. The name of the scrapyard seems to be derived from the S & I Thomson Auto Salvage and Motor Spares, a scrapyard in Galashiels, south of Edinburgh, United Kingdom.
Thomson Scrapyard is used in the following missions:
- Hidden Bonus: Golden Peyote – Grand Theft Auto 5
- The Doomsday Heist (Setup: Khanjali) – Grand Theft Auto Online
- Gang Attack – Grand Theft Auto Online
Players can find a Canis Seminole or a BF Injection parked near the warehouse in the scrapyard. There’s also a functional vending machine inside the area. Overall, the region was well created, and Rockstar did an amazing job in keeping the atmosphere of the scrapyard grounded in reality.
The Gun Van is a part of the Los Santos Drug Wars DLC drip feed, and fans can expect much more content to be added to the game in 2023.
