Honestly, every Hollywood mission with Autogyros inspires hate from me. But that first one... Those autogyros are MURDER ON WINGS. They outturn everything, they can keep pace with most planes, and they're immune to the choker rocket (stupid autogyro blades). Then, once you're finished dealing with them, a wave of Fury's sweeps in to ruin your day. So at this point, your're in the red everywhere, your engine sounds like it's firin on 3 out of 8 pistons, nearly out of rockets, and then 5 Firebrands show up. Now Firebrands are jokes in this game, but you're fighting with one hand behind your back, on bloody stumps for legs, wearing a loin cloth and holding a butter knife. The Knights have AK-47s and are sitting in Tanks.
I get the impression the mission designer thought to himself 'Hmmm, how can I most screw over the player? I Know! Autogyros! Useless Wingmen that get shot down within 5 seconds of engaging the autogyros! Then a squadron of Furys, then some Firebrands when the player thinks they are in the clear.
The Spruce goose mission is no picnic either. The third time through I was ready to shoot the damn thing out of the air myself, what with Betty whining at me "One more Engine and I'll be going down in flames".
Oh, and for reference, 18 tries to beat the first Hollywood mission. "Would you like to skip this Mission" seems like such an insult after you plowed your a/c into the ground because you stalled just prior to saving the actress from her car.
