The final invasion force is close to the landing strip. Once you defeat the tanks, do not go after your secondary target. Instead, land your plane and wait for the flak sequence to finish. 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 will be able to switch planes. Note: You only have time for one or two landing attempts before it switches to the "Flak" mode. If this happens, you must restart Guadalcanal. If you fail to land your plane, "crash it" before the "Flak" mode begins. You will restart just above the landing strip.
