The game has five different viewing options. The cockpit, both left and right wings, the navigational map and the bomb bay (these can be accessed by using the keyboard or by double-tapping the fire button and then moving the joystick to the desired direction). In missions, you control a twin-engine balsa RAF Mosquito which is already up in the sky (need to takeoff). When starting missions, you choose what supplies you wish to bring.

When missions are completed, you can choose to combine two or more of the other missions to produce a mashup.
