One of the major battles in WWII dealt with the scuttling of the huge German battleship Bismarck. There is also a movie about it. A fortunate torpedo hit at the stern of the Bismarck was made by an out-dated Fairey Swordfish, torpedo bomber, bi-plane that rendered the battleship's steering gear inoperable. The Swordfish took off from the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal. This mission is more-or-less aimed at simulating that event. You will need: Downloads of the Bismarck, a Swordfish torpedo bomber bi-plane, & the Ark Royal carrier are required.

Take off from the only airport on Easter Island off the coast of Chile & look for statues positioned around the island. The statues have been numbered in this mission, but may not appear in numerical order as you find them. After you find a statue, a landmark pointer will be placed by it so you won't try to count the same statue more than once. After all 13 statues have been found, you will be notified to land back at the airport for mission success.

Costa Concordia Rescue: The Competition, is a spin off on Part 1 of the mission sequel. In this part you're flying the Cessna Caravan shuttling a news crew to Isola Del Giglio, Italy, to record the ship's salute to the island, which went tragically wrong. (Part 2 is flying the EH101 rescuing a fouled lifeboat) Goals include low altitude and low speed flybys for photography and a fast track return to the airport for reporting the tragedy. The competition involves the best flyby results, coupled with shortest return time. The 1st three flight results are documented and preserved for the record.

The mission begins at dawn during a major thunderstorm. Lots of turbulence so take along an air sickness bag just in case. You may need Acceleration for this mission.

For several years I've tried unsuccessfully to locate a place & time in FSX that displays the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. Yet the effects do exist in FSX. The mission I've uploaded is a simple one with no downloads required & uses the Cessna 172 Skyhawk. Except for having to gain some initial altitude, you should not have any trouble completing this mission.
