Earn Easy Stunt Points

Get in the sports car outside the entrance of Panau International Airport and drive it to a runway.

The Lost Island in Just Cause 2

The first time you fly over the island located in the far northwest corner of the map, your plane will automatically crash. Fans of the show Lost will notice that this island is actually inspired by the popular TV series. After completing a brief mission, you can find several resource packs around the island and even investigate a hatch from the show.

The Mile High Club
