LF name of the late 80's vertical scroller shoot'em-up coinop

Hello All,
May I ask the community for help in identifying a name of a coin-up game I remember playing in late 80's.
What I remember was a quite typical vertical scrolling shoot'em-up, colourful and with a lot of glowing power-ups, so common in late 80's.
Player controlled a plane or fighter-type of small spaceship.
The unique thing about this game (that may hopefully be a good clue to identify it) was the background. It was Earth landscape; the game started somewhere in Caribbean and the level(s) progressed and the fighter flew North, you could see Cuba, Florida, US East Coast, etc. scrolling beneath.
Quite a cool game it was...
Anyone knows its name? Many thanks in advance for help.

Regards,
pszczola2

Re: LF name of the late 80's vertical scroller shoot'em-up coinop

So similar to 1941 - Arcade/Coin-Op except flying over east coast of U.S. instead of pacific ocean?

How do you know what you are flying over. Did the game label it (levels would be named Cuba, Florida etc) or you could just recognize the background and it looked similar to those places?
