Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 9 (11-9)

Our strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 11-9 is to fire the Red bird into the side of the main structure. Its effect is minimal, but triggering the TNT will result in significant damage. Next, loft a Yellow bird over the structure and speed boost into the stones in the top-right. This should cause the top to fall to the right, leaving only two cages in the middle of the level. For the highest scores, fire the Yellow bird through the sand supporting the top structure. The score in the video below is 98,040.

Go go first with red low into front and TNT, yellow bird over to tip the back, and then yellow in front again to take out sand below remaining structure. Collateral in each shot is key

103,320.. With at least 10-13k more possible:
Like above post by @rocklands… But I aim 1st red bird straight at left-most red gas can… This blows everything to the right, including the TNT, which blows the rest to the right….

Birds 2 and 3, if needed… Use however necessary to clean up… Usually this is the same as rocklands/video

Thanx Kathy, no I can get him to hit first red fire thing and the very first part of structure goes with first two birds, like you describe exactly, but not like others describe that it even takes out the pesky right middle two under the sand things…It never does…I just now finally got above average but it was as just described with first bird and second bird hit the blocks and took out the rest, even the ones under sand so I didn’t need usual third bird…but I’ve done this before and never got above average? Just more debris this time I guess? Btw FYI, I did actually get that far right fire extinguisher to fall over and even exploded for 500 points but mucked up the next shot..this was NOT with my new posted above average score…I remember you mentioning it in a post…

I just put 15 consecutive shots into the red can, which blew, exploding the TNT and destroying the first cage in the structure with 3 birds. It did no other damage to the structure. The damage was identical every time.

What am I missing?

What you’ve been getting from the TNT/extinguisher combo is pretty much it, aside from variable collateral damage. The second shot needs to be lobbed into the upper right structure, into the corner created by the stacking of a long concrete block, and a short one on top of it between the wooden crates on the upper ledge. With yellow, use a medium lob to get him over the left side of the upper ledge, then tap to accelerate, getting him to strike the previously mentioned concrete blocks. This should push that part of the upper structure into the two right-most cages, thus breaking them, and possibly, causing the right side extinguisher to detonate.

Sorry that I’m a bit late to the party. I suspect look misspoke here. When he says it will low everything to the right (“including TNT”),, I suspect he means left (because there is no TNT to the right).

@ohforfive, from my perspective, you’re wasting the red bird on the first red canister, instead, fling your red bird at the left wooden leg of the first tower and that’ll blow up the TNT, red canister and bring down the left side tower along with maybe a cage or two, after that just do the other one or two shots in the order you feel most comfortable with. Happy Flingin’!

I have a few times. Depending on how it’s struck, it can be a dud, or it can act somewhat like a grenade. Minimal damage, but it all helps.

Yep, I’ve got it a few times. Nearly everything is destroyed by the time it blows, and it’s not worth much anyway.

108.2k so far. I prefer using 1st bird (red) to tip the back (will often take out one or two sandblocks). Then accelerate 2nd bird (yellow) directly into horizontal concrete bar in front. This will set off TNT. 2-birder possible, but the best outcome is to shoot the 3rd bird into last sandblock to finish whatever remains. Scores above 100k are commmon.

Thank you SO MUCH!!! Been trying the video way & just couldnt get it.
After 2 tries your way I had 3 stars!!! Thanks again!!!

11-9, 110380 w/3 Birds.. Same strategy as “parlonsQc” since first day but new motivation today and I thank you for it..
1st shot – r/b tipped the pivotal structure over to the right.
2ndshot – y/b collapsed the low front of main structure with a super TNT/debris explosion.
3rd shot – y/b took out the two remaining sand block supports for some great collateral damage.

Good luck and thanks to all the “shooters” that shared their strategies!.. thx

This is one of “those” levels where so much depends on collateral damage. I sent 1st bird higher, into cardboard box on left side, which then fell onto TNT, causing similar damage, usually taking out leftmost cage under sand blocks, you need about 35k at this point. As I repeatedly played this to improve my score I found switching 2nd & 3rd shots from video consistently gave me higher scores (not that they were all that impressive) but in the end this method allowed me to up my score by 4k. Actually managed this with 2 birds, as 2nd shot went all the way through under sand blocks to take the rest of the cages out, but with minimal damage score was only about 75k.

The points seem to be racking up a little easier on my iPhone not iPad as I just got a 2-birder for 105400 & can’t break 101k on iPad.

Red to bottom left vertical wood, debris set off TNT. A lot of the left side had come down when something from the explosion bounced right into the leftmost sand block causing what’s above to fall left. The left caged birds remained & score was 47170.

YB to tip right section over took out right caged birds & yet another piece of debris fell left & took out middle cage. It was certainly a lot of luck, which wasn’t with me in previous day’s Challenge South HAMerica 1-3 when I could not earn a puppy despite the massive adoption party : -(.

I was thinking about shooting #3 as I thouught I might get more than 10k, but the level timed out way too quickly so my 95400 after 2 birds became 105400 with the 10k bonus bird.

By PeeJayDee27 (@peejaydee27)Score: 106,660

Almost the same experience @justpast40. Arced red up to the top horizontal stone beam, and he dropped back onto the TNT. A piece of debris from the explosion ignites the red fire extinguisher and this is what blows more debris back to collapse the left side. Then YB to topple the right side, but only a little time before it times out. Max I got with this strat was 103K, but still trying.
Best score for me so far was red to topple the crane structure first, then YB to take out the left side, but then the third shot to the sand blocks is really tricky. One observation – if you don’t manage to destroy almost all of the small structure on the far right with the first shot, it’s difficult if not impossible to get a high score.
