With the installation of the RAF Alconbury scenery I note that all of the A-10's have black wheels, tyres and ordnance!

Any idea what might be causing this and has anyone else had a similar issue?

I think you will find the answer in step 2 of the installation (see manual) and also the reminder .pdf I placed in the A-10 root folder so user's won't forget to add the textures for the wheels and load-out to the main FS9 or FSX\ texture folder.

John,

Yeah,

Placed the file in the Scenery - Texture folder and not the main Texture folder as quite obviously pointed out in the supplied and extensive documents with the download!

I'll get back in my box now but first thanks to all of you who design scenery, aircraft etc for free and put up with Muppets like me that don't take the time to read the documents you put together for individual Muppets like me!

No problem Dave, we all do things like that at times.

U2 traffic Alconbury is maybe not so retro today? I Know the U-2 with that big pod on top now flies a lot here up north. They even post selfies from cocpit regarding the northern lights. I found this info at RT (Russki newspaper) on net. Lotsa plane stuff there. :smt003

Only if the scenery designer re-makes them.
