Free Flying for 8 Red Coins

Free Flying for 8 Red Coins is the fifth mission of Shifting Sand Land in Super Mario 64 and its seventh and final mission in Super Mario 64 DS. While the Star number changed, the name and objective of the mission, collecting the course's eight Red Coins, did not, nor did the locations of the Red Coins themselves.
There are eight Red Coins scattered over Shifting Sand Land. Four of them are on land, and the other four are in the air, requiring the use of the Wing Cap. As such, Mario (or someone wearing Mario's cap) is required to complete this mission in Super Mario 64 DS. Alternatively, the player can use Luigi's Backward Somersault, the cannons, and the tornadoes to get the Red Coins. Additionally, none of the Red Coins are located within the pyramid. These are the locations of the eight Red Coins:
