Saint's Row 2 Guide
Barnstorming entails flying a helicopter or plane below bridges, walkways, through tunnels, or between buildings. There are 35 Barnstorming locations in Stilwater. For the stunt to register, you’ll usually have to come at the obstacle from a certain direction. All of the details are listed below, so match the map points with the corresponding text if necessary.
Small stunt planes, such as the Wolverine and Corsette, are better suited than helicopters for completing most of these stunts. It would be a good idea to purchase the Airport Hangar crib at the Wardill Airport before attempting this, since the hangar can be used to store aircrafts. There should be a Corsette parked by the airport terminal, which you can roll over to the hangar and store it in your garage for easy access.
By far the easiest way to complete these stunts is to use the Destroy UFO, which is unlocked using a code that was given out to those who pre-ordered the game. This code has been shared over the internet, however, and can be entered using the Dial option on the mobile phone just like a cheat code. The UFO does not count as a cheat, so as of this writing, making use of it will not disable achievements. To unlock the UFO, dial #728237 on the mobile phone, open the Cheats menu, then go to Vehicles and activate it. The UFO is stored in the aircraft helipad on the Saints Hideout crib in the Red Light District.
Use the UFO at your own discretion, because even though as of this writing entering the code does not disable achievements, this could change. If a prompt appears when you enter the code informing you that it will disable achievements, you’ll have to use a stunt plane instead.
Completing all 35 aerial stunts unlocks the “Maverick Goose” achievement on the Xbox 360 version.
