Two very experience pilots - you are one of them - have been hired to follow an 8 month sea expedition. In this 3rd mission you fly the vintage Douglas DC-3 N47D and visit 3 airports in the Rio the Janeiro region. This mission is a bit more difficult to fly.

What this is all about: During 2009 and 2010 FScene is publishing a new series of free Flight Simulator X Missions, in cooperation with a team of old FS boys.

The Team

Ruud Faber, Jaap van Hees, Chip Barber and Francois Dumas are all 'veterans' of the international flight simulation 'scene' and have put their spare time, enthusiasm and talents together to come up with this new "Beagle" series.

The Theme

The missions are all Inspired by a recently started 35-part Radio/TV series of VPRO, a Dutch Radio/TV station, to celebrate Charles Darwin's 200th birth year and the 150th anniversary of his publication of "On the Origin of Species". They follow Charles Darwin's journey on the "Beagle" (1831-1836). Packed with Scientists, writers and artists the clipper "Stad Amsterdam" has left Plymouth on the first of September 2009 for an 8 months' journey around the world.

Do It Now!

Join their adventure, and lend a hand! Supplied by air they need new instruments, medicines and food. As aircraft captain you are responsible for resupply. You'll fly many different aircraft. Over many different seas.

Read all about it in the missions PDF flyer or have a look at the intro video at the YouTube FScene channel. The first two missions are waiting for you.

Download them and get connected to the project at the FScene web site.

Only for experienced players?

No, the missions are not meant as challenges. 'Just for fun' is a better description. Although this 3rd one is a bit more difficult to fly.

Because the FScene replacement ground textures pleasantly enhance the landscapes in these missions, you can take advantage of related special FScene offers during the whole periode of the Beagle mission project.
