Air Delivery by Levi

Use your plane to deliver the packages to as many houses as possible. Watch out for the balloons, as they will damage your plane. Three hits and you are done. Packages can also be used to clear the balloons. But be careful, as you have a limited number of packages. Pick up a package refill to replenish the stock of packages on your plane.
