Here's an FSX Mission I found at Avsim: ww-flight01.zip
It's a WW2 mission, an anti-submarine patrol up the north eastern coast of Scotland, starting from Inverness and ending beyond the naval anchorage at Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands (unless you find a U-Boat before that). There are plenty of ships to see en route and bad weather to hamper your search.
Excuse the use of an inappropriate aeroplane (Gera recommends a "Hamden"), but I always liked the Beechcraft D18S by Milton Shupe (& friends), and in it's FSX version, with this new 616 Squadron repaint by Mike Puckett, it really looks the business (although what I will do if I spot a U-Boat I have no idea!).
Haven't found many 'missions' that I enjoyed in FSX - but this is certainly one - I'm flying it in stages (saving in between).

Sadly it's no longer at Avsim and my copy was lost in a recent 'crash & wipe', but don't despair - it can be found at Flightsim.com under the filename
As usual Flightsim's filenames are slightly different from Avsim's. The author is Gera Godoy Canova and I've taken the opportunity to get myself a new copy as I never did manage to finish it last time around ;-)
