Long gone from Fortnite, planes are finally making their return to the island! Here are all the details.
Throughout Fortnite's long history, there have been quite a few vehicle types on the island. From golf and shopping carts, to hoverboards and even helicopters among other things. Recently, however, normal cars have become the game's standard vehicle. One vehicle that has arguably experienced the most love/hate was an airplane known as the X-4 Stormwing.
The planes were first introduced in Chapter 1, Season 7 and have been in the game a few times since. And now after such a long time, they are supposed to appear again in Chapter 3, Season 4.

As so often, the leaks come from our good friend and Fortnite insider Shiina. According to him, there is a challenge in the files that requires you to fly an airplane through a rift.
Planes will be unvaulted in next week's content update!— Shiina (@ShiinaBR) October 18, 2022
We know this because of this quest we're getting next week: "Take a Biplane through a rift" pic.twitter.com/d4n7zK2Mzu
Actually, this quest was set for this week, which meant that the planes should appear on the island with the latest content update. It seems, however, that Epic replaced the mission a minute before the quests went live.

Instead, we got Crash Pads and no other Fortnitemares items. Honestly not sure why Epic handles this year's Fortnitemares like this...
It's a shame, of course, but don't worry, the planes will still appear in Fortnite, just a little later than expected.

If there are no problems again this time, the planes will come into play with the next major Fortnite patch 22.30. The update arrives on November 1st, so you won't have to wait long before you can fly through the island again.
Don't worry, as we'll keep you updated on this and more Fortnite updates in the future.
