GTA IV: Under the Radar achievement

GTA IV: Under the Radar is a tricky achievement to get. It involves getting a helicopter and flying under all the bridges in the game. Start by driving to the Heli Tours and stealing a helicopter. After flying under the first bridge you'll be informed there's 12 more to do for an achievement. At this point the bridges you need to fly under are highlighted on your radar and in the in game map, but only briefly so take note quickly. Interesting enough, the radio in the helicopter comes on after flying under the 2nd bridge. Strange.

All in all it took me less than 10 minutes to do (handy for YouTube). The bridges in Aldernay attract unwanted police attention. You'll see them shooting at me towards the end of the video where I start to lose concentration and hit a few things. I saved the worst bridge for last - where the helicopter gets real close to the water.

Im having such a hard time with this one, i went to the HeliTours and stole a helicopter, and every bridge i flew under it said "so-so and brifges left to unlock achievement" or whatever. I was under the impression that there are 14 bridges as opposed to 13 because when i check the stats in the pause screen under player, it says i flew under 13, but I still don't have the achievement unlocked...i dont get it!

I´ve been under all the bridges, even that one in middle park and through that thing that´s on your left if you go through the south boot tunnel (or something like that) from algonquin to alderny. Nice to try these things

most ofcourse got it allready completed by the time i now posted this,, but this guy is talking about 12 bridges but i lolled,, cause when you fly under the first bridge you pick most probs the closest one to the helitour place you get a message 13 more,, well chingching cause there are 14 bridges totally you need to fly under some are like excatly next to each other so some ppl dont mark them in there vids as a sepperate bridge,, and ofc 12 this guy says cause there 2 places where the bridge is right next to the other

Sorted, the bridge at the bottom left, heading west, you have to fly under the left arch, as shown in the vid (2nd last).

This video was a huge help. I didn't realize that I at the last bridge you went under you had to make a left for it to register that you went under it. Thanks for the help!

Didn't help. Maybee it's because I crashed during my first flight ?
I stole a heli, and took some sightseeing before all islands were open. Then got the very wanted level of 6 stars.
Only managed 4 bridges then.. Later I tried continuing the achievement.. But I can't get the last counting bridge.. Tried all bridges 3 times, but no more counting..
To bad..
