The assassination is to be carried out by shooting from a helicopter. First, they take Hackman in a Bell UH-1N Twin Huey for a familiarisation flight, during which Hackman conducts target practice (he throws paint cans into the ocean and shoots at them with an M16), and they show him the target building with the outdoor swimming pool where the assassination is to be carried out.

The second run is for real, and Hackman shoots at the target person, but bodyguards return fire from the ground, wounding the pilot and damaging the helicopter.
