The final invasion force is close to the landing strip. After taking out the tanks, do not go after your secondary target. Instead, land your plane and wait for the flak sequence to conclude. While sitting on the tarmac, an enemy plane will attempt to take you out. Command your squadron to go into "Defensive" and "Attack" mode. At the conclusion you can switch planes. Note: You only have time for one or two landing attempts before it switches to the "Flak" mode. If this happens, you will have to restart Guadalcanal. If you fail to land your plane, "crash it" before the "Flak" mode starts. You will restart just above the landing strip.
