Hanger 18 screen
"Welcome to Hangar 18. After the U.S. Government banishes all people from Hangar 18, I dropped by and took a look around. I'd say the U.F.O. is quite a find. Watch for its defense system... it's most powerful."

Hangar 18 is the third level in Twisted Metal III.

Twisted Metal III

Parked smack dab in the middle of Hanger 18 is a flashy little craft that confirms millions of tabloid conspiracy theories in one fell swoop. If you're slick, you can drive right into it and relive all your space wrangler fantasies on the upper deck. Disclaimer: we are not responsible for alien probing that may result from your close encounter.

If you conquer these first three battlefields, Calypso will increase your challenge and teleport additional contestants into your game. Sorry, but cheerleaders aren't included.

Hangar 18 is essentially a large circle. You can get on top of the U.F.O. by shooting all 4 switches around the area and going through the teleporter inside, then dropping off of the platform you appear on.

On top of the U.F.O. is an weapon called the Spaceship. Activating it will cause electrical currents to surge from the spaceship and shock any enemies on the bottom floor. This weapon is extremely powerful and can even kill enemies at full health with one attack.
