The Boomers are a faction that you'll need to deal with regardless of whom you decide to ally with. There control over large scale bombs and missiles are an important resource to any of the major powers. Or you can simply destroy them and eliminate the Boomer's power from the playing field. Pearl and Loyal are the leaders of the Boomer's and killing them will cause the power structure to collapse.
First is a matter of even getting to the air force base. The guards will be firing missiles as you approach, so you'll need to run quickly and take cover to keep from being blasted to pieces. If you're going for a hostile result, you can lockpick the front gate and kill all of the members inside. Otherwise, agree to meet with Pearl and complete a few tasks to gain fame with the Boomers.
Part of Volare includes completing the other related quests Ant Misbehavin' and Young Hearts. If you also have a high amount of skill in Medicine, you can also gain fame by healing injured Boomers inside the infirmary. You can also give gifts to various Boomers, including Scrap Metal to Jack, missiles to Raquel, and toy rockets to the children.
With enough fame, Pearl will inform you that Loyal has one last task: recover a sunken bomber from Lake Mead. You can optionally gain a rebreather to easily swim underwater. You'll need to gather a Pressure Cooker or have high Science and talk to Jack. However, it's not at all required.
Head to Lake Mead and be ready to fight the Lurks swimming around. Dive down to the plane and attach the Ballasts to the bottom of each wing. Return to the surface and arm yourself with the detonator Loyal gave you. After raising the bomber, return to Pearl to gain the Boomers allegiance.
Racquel wants you to destroy a number of ants that have gathered around the base. Loyal has a device that may be able to help in your efforts, though he hasn't really tested it. It will still come in handy.
Enter the building and kill off any ants that are running around. Find the quest marker and locate the main ant nest. Attach the device from Loyal to destroy the ants for good.
Now you'll need to start up the generator. There are two switches on the east wall to start up some power. The final switch is up the stairs to the main level. After turning on the power, return to Racquel to end your task.
Jack has his own mission for you. He seems to have a crush on Janet from Crimson Caravan.
First travel to Crimson Caravan and talk to Janet to see if she feels the same way. You can give her a few answers, including discussing allowing her to enter Nellis. If you really want to be evil you can also tell her to go there right way, which will in turn kill her.
After talking to Janet, return to Pearl and talk to her about letting Janet come. Next, talk to Jack and you'll gain a spare Boomer outfit. Give the outfit to Janet and she'll be almost ready to go. Finally, talk to Alice McLafferty about letting Janet go. After everything is settled talked to Jack and Janet at Nellis to complete the mission.
