Now that the good doctor is safely recovered, it's time to rescue the lovely Ilsa Fassenbiender from the pernicious clutches of that well-known evil corporation - Boeing!! But the mission has an extra bonus to offer our pirates' gang: The "Blue Streak" plane and blueprints, which is a Hughes Bloodhawk with a nitro boost twist!

Recommended PlaneEdit

Hughes Devastator.

Reccomended LoadoutEdit

You'll want a fair amount of flak to take down the Peacemakers, but a couple HE rockets will do wonders for that fuel depot.


You start off flying with your squadron at the Boeing Field and you are greeted by a squadron of Blake Aviation Peacemakers. You can leave your wingmen to deal with them, but it's faster if you join in. You will have to fly low over the train at about 3/4 throttle to pick up Ilsa Fassenbiender, Willhem's daughter. If there are any enemy planes around, this gets significantly harder, so try and clear the skies first. The Railroad is a loop, so possibly there is no problem failing the "ladder trick" a couple of times. Once you've got Ilsa you need to take care of the remaining fighters (The 4 peacemakers will be joined by at least 2 more), but also keep an ear out for the trucks. Jack will tell you when they reach the depot and it's time to blow them up. This triggers the hangar doors opening. You will need to fly into the hangar, and after a brief cutscene you will be seen flying a Hughes Bloodhawk, codename "Blue Streak". 3 BAS Peacemakers and a Northwest Ace (also in a Bloodhawk) will hunt you as you exit the hangar. Destroy the Ace first and any other fighters in the area, to end the mission successfully.
