Do you have the elevation stub file in FS9\scenery\world\scenery and have you switched off any modern day scenery of Macdill?
Yes John, FS9 and all as you say. Really strange. Also check all files coming from the Florida Orion package. Can't find anything wrong...
Still investigating...

I would definitely have noticed that.
You definitely have some parts of another scenery installed there.

This is the type of problem that drive me crazy... :evil:
Switched on FS9 after lunch, and the problem has gone! :roll:
I've just deleted and reinstalled AFX_KMCF_empty.bgl.
BTW the closest scenery in the area is St. Petesburg Clearwater.
I'll let you know if the problem raises again.
Thank you all.

Sometimes, if your pc has been on for a while (a few days), you can get all sorts of graphics card glitches which I get quite often especially in FS.
As you say powering off and on is the only way to clear it.

That is really fantastic - now I can get rid of many not so nice B-47 AI, which I made from available flyable B-47. Thank you - great job (this goes for all of your Palnes and sceneries).

John I know it’s been seven months since you released this

In the early 1960s Hurlbert was utilized as a Strategic Air Command dipersal base for B 47s of the 306th bomb wing at MacDill AFB Florida

I can't get any buildings at McDill to show in P3Dv4. Same problem at Loring. Carswell on the other hand shows buildings and hangars. I would have though these library objects would have been compiled in FSX and therefore would appear, but maybe not?

The only buildings I can see at Macdill are some of those that I custom made, plus the trees. None of the library objects are appearing. I can't see any buildings at all Loring.

Ok thanks John good to know. Guess the objects bgl's need to be recompiled in P3Dv4 - or something like that.

John Stintrom's Loring uses some of his own FS9 libraries that might not compatible with P3Dv4. I would have thought Macdill would have worked better, but there are clearly some objects still in FS9 format. Since I don't have the source files from the original authors and a few hundred hours to spare, there's not much I can do unfortunately.
