Just put all your energy in knocking off the transit planes. The key is to make sure you actually shot down every plane in each grouping. You will notice the marker for some of the planes that you missed growing faint. This means the planes are trying to land. You need to get down to shoot them before they land. Trust you may think you got every plane in each pattern but chances are you did not if you don't keep close count of how many are in each grouping. Also coming in from the side helps your kill rate. I hope this helps. The next stage is boring by comparison.
I didn't realy have any trouble with level on arcade at all to be honest... when i biuht the game the guy who sold it to me said it would be a bad level and just to go mental and shoot everything.
I pretty much did just this... get onto the same altitude as the transport planes, match speed behind them and shoot them down... i sent my wing against other targets...or to follow objective...i can't remember which... i should go through it again and maybe record a video of me doing it.
the mission i had MAJOR trouble with was the baby sitting mission...i must have attempted that about 15-20 times before i managed to do it.
