* BestLevelEver:
** The Rio de Janeiro and Washington D.C missions have you fighting off a full scale invasion by both air and ground forces, making them the most memorable and fun levels in the entire game.
** The final, frantic push at the end of Operation Twilight is also pretty exhilarating, where Crenshaw has a [[TimedMission limited]] time to fly through anti-air fire and enemy planes to destroy a nuke before it destroys the entire city.
** In the sequel's last mission, Last Stand, you shoot down several squadrons of enemy fighters and clear a path on the ground for your allies, and then you ''shoot down nukes while dodging FrickinLaserBeams from a KillSat''. And of course, it ends with an AirstrikeImpossible segment through a narrow tunnel.
