To unlock this achievement you must not destroy any civilians in the mission entitled "Flying Fortress" which is the 6th mission. This achievement can be unlocked during any difficulty but I highly recommend this on Easy.

This achievement is a given. In order to get this achievement you must finish the mission. So if you finish the mission you will get the achievement. There is no way you will miss this. Just follow what the computer says and follow my guide below. Just finish it before the time runs out.

Below is my guide on how to beat this level (it was written for the hardest difficulty but still works just fine for easy mode):

Mission 6: Flying Fortress

I love timed missions (not!).

Once you start press LEFT on your d-pad to power your thruster and fly like a madman to this large Flying Fortress (these guys have too much money!). Once you start to get close to it, you are going to have to switch to life support (press UP on the d-pad) and start going doing flight maneuvers (go left, right, up, and down) to avoid the blasts. Head to the left of the plane and land as soon as you can. Take out any turrets or choppers in your way, take cover and heal. Take out the remaining anti-air turrets (there are 10 in total). Work your way from the top left to the top right of the ship, make SURE you destroy the pad the choppers are coming out of (there is two of them on the top middle) or you will not last long. Once you destroyed all the AA turrets on the top move to the bottom and take out the AA turrets from right to left. Try to avoid hovering for long times, the ship is moving. If you lose one or two reboots that is okay but is possible to do without losing any reboots.

Next you will have to destroy four hangers. This is super easy. Fly to the top front of this flying hunk of metal. If the hangers are open, great! Shoot the fuel tank inside and BOOM no more hanger. If the hanger are closed don't worry. Just stand 10-15 feet away from the hanger, look at the ground near the hanger and press Y to launch a missile. If done correctly you will destroy it. It might take some practice but it works well after you know how to do it. You should lose no reboots during this part.

Next take out the cooling units. There are four of them. Fly to their location, I recommend flying above the ship and not below it. They are located in the middle part of the ship. Destroy them as soon as possible, when traveling to the next one remember to fly above the ship. You can lose one reboot but I recommend not losing any (it can be done pretty easy).

Next are the four colling tanks. Fly above the ship to the back and lo and behold an open door! You can either hover above the opening, drop down shoot some stuff and fly back up to heal OR you can land on the very back of the ship and hover up and shoot some stuff, land to heal. I found landing is better. Remember the ship is moving, try to keep up.

Lastly, and the most easiest, is the reactor. Fly to the top end of the ship in the middle. Land inside the opening next to the reactor and blast it. I had two reboots left but did not need any.
