This is the one and only time I suggest a player use a cheat.
NOT to pass the mission, But to PRACTICE with the HYDRA.
After you practice DO NOT SAVE. Just restart and play the normal game.
Triangel, Triangel, Square, Circle, X, L1, L1, Down, Up
The Game tutural should be telling you which buttons do what.
Don't forget to Raise the Landing Gear once you lift off, and put it down when you land.
1. blow up the two jets on the hanger deck, the on the side elevator, and the one inboard. Use the one on the stern lift.
2. Once you have altitude and have activated the remaining jet, land under the bridge. The Chase jet will crash.
2a. At altitude go back to hover mode and spin. Alternately engage auto aim as you fire rockets.
3. Fly to the Verdant Meadows Aerodrome and land. Attack the 'ships' from land.
4. Blow up the 'ships' with a missile launcher or other weapon.
5. Return to the Aerodrome and taxi the Hydra to the marker(s).
6. Jump out of the Hydra in the final marker to stop it, if you're moving at a slow speed.
