Complete all 3 Bonus stages to get the new pilot, Spanky.
During the intro scene, punch in the following code: Up, C-Down, Left, C-Right, Down, C-Up, Right, C-Left, L, R, Z. You should hear a chime if the code worked. Now go to Main Game and choose your level.
Extra planes in Battle Mode:
Use the above codes to get the F-15 and the level select menu. Select the moon mission in the F-15, and destroy the big flying saucer with both superweapon lasers. You will enter your initals, and then go back to the main menu. Now select the two-player deathmatch. You should have 6 new planes. Note: you have to do this every time you turn on the machine to get the new bonus planes again. The game doesn't save the planes.
