Shamal is a multi-task jet-powered business aeroplane, engineered and manufactured by an in-game British company Buckingham.
Buckingham Shamal made it's first appearance in the Grand Theft Auto series in GTA: San Andreas, from where it moved off to the fifth part of the series, to GTA 5, though it has suffered some transformations (for example, when redesigning it, Rockstar changed it's source of inspiration for another plane, however it still looks very similar). In the game there is also a luxury variant of the aeroplane, Luxor, however if Luxor is a private plane, Shamal is actively used by a numerous airlines companies for short regional flights. Also, Shamal is almost completely white, with it's tail, stabilisers and jet-engines painted in blue and with an blue line as plane's contour.
Just like it's black brother, Shamal takes the honourable fourth place by speed among planes of GTA 5, however it falls behind the finalists by manoeuvrability. The main advantage of Shamal over other planes is it's passenger capacity of up to 10 (including a driver), which is more that enough in most cases. Buckingham Shamal can be rarely met landing in Los Santos International Airport, also it can be bought for $1150000 through ElitasTravel.com website.
Most part of vehicles in GTA 5 are modelled after real ones, and Buckingham Shamal is no exception. It's real-life prototype is an American Learjet 45, manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace.
