The Mendoza International Airport is a modern international airport in Just Cause (1).
It was named after Salvador Mendoza and it has 3 runways that extend out to sea. Only the middle one of those runways is capable of serving the two largest planes in the game. The airport has two high air-traffic control towers next to the two small runways and two radio masts which are located either side of the entrance at opposite ends of the wire mesh fence. If maneuvered correctly, the Alexander AX-14 can be used to take off on the two smaller runways, though the smaller of the runways are meant to serve the Stirling Jet Exclusive 9 and planes of a lower overall size. Any plane can easily be landed and can take off with no problems at all on the largest runway.
The Guerilla 25 "Camp Aguila" safehouse is right next to the airport, near the eastern radio mast. This has a slight reference to Provincia Aguilar as the names are similar and the fact that Provincia Aguilar has it's own airfield. Also if the player wishes to get to the international airport quickly from anywhere, they can call in an extraction to the nearby Guerilla safehouse, providing that it is unlocked beforehand.
Despite being an international airport, the hangars cannot be used to store planes, because the doors are always closed. This might be a disappointment to players who were hoping to store vehicles within these hangars.
San Esperito International Arms FairEdit
The fair in 2005 had no real visitors. There was only a small number of Montano Cartel soldiers and police men patrolling the area, as guards.
As reported by the Gaceta Nacional del San Esperito, according to Luis Mendoza the money from this fair helps the children. There are multiple gazeboes located around the sides of the main terminal during this event.
Vehicles that spawn thereEdit
- AVIA airport tug (several are driving around at random).
- Stirling Jet Exclusive 9. Sometimes 2 will appear depending if the Alexander AX-14 is destroyed or not spawned yet. The other jet appears in the exact place on the other side where the Alexander AX-14 spawns. Note this will happen very rarely.
- A large military cargo plane Alexander AX-14. One of these planes can always be seen flying above the airport but for some reason they try landing away from the runway and usually crash into a building. When this happens, a lot of the time they will explode and attract quite a few government soldiers or Guerrilla soldiers depending on if the airport is liberated or not. The planes will fall at random angles and positions, sometimes crashing nose down or even descending slowly sideways which is quite surreal and odd to see.
- The presidents plane. This plane shows up only during the last mission ("Taking out the garbage vol.3") when it's seen taking off.
