Are you an FSX pilot? Do you like to fly missions? We've got some news for you. 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.

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 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 the greater part of Charles Darwin's journey on the HMS "Beagle" (1831-1836). Packed with Scientists, writers and artists the clipper "Stad Amsterdam" has left Plymouth on the first of September 2009 for this 8 months' journey around the world.
