Then that's a puzzle. You have the E-2 and C-2 in the correct folder, the carrier is in place with the revised AFCAD with the larger parking, the F-35's are working with their traffic file and you have the E2/C2 traffic file in place too.I'm assuming both your traffic sliders are set to 100%. I would have asked you to check for rogue FS9 traffic files but I think that's unlikely since the F-35's are showing, but it might be worth doing. Try scanning your FSX installation, scenery/world/scenery and local scenery folders, with the tool in the Bulk traffic drop down menu in AIFP.

Thanks,
I did check last night if I had any rogue FS9 files but came up empty. I may have to dump the whole file and reinstall slowly. (Question- is it ok to install both C and D C2 traffic files in scenery/world/scenery?) Rob

No, that will duplicate the E-2's on deck + 1 C-2A and there are only two spots to accommodate them. You will need to modify the AFCAD to create 3 suitable spots, 1 at the expense of an F-35C because space on the deck is limited.

Rob,
As the traffic density for the carrier flights is set at 1% and both are IFR the usual traffic slider errors can be ruled out this time.
As nobody else has noticed any problem the only thing that I can think of at the moment is that something went wrong in your installation of the carrier models,
I also checked the parking spot size are they are good enough.

What i would suggest is clear out the current carrier folders and re-install them in simobjects and reinstall the traffic files again.
It is quite common that a deinstall/reinstall overcomes the initial problem.

I've put a paint kit together for the Hawkeye's and Greyhounds and sent it for inclusion in the Download Hangar.

I finished painting the CODs of VRC-30 "Providers" based at NAS North Island. All I need to do is set up the textures and create the flight plans. The Providers have 5 detachments; 4 are stationed at North Island, and Det 5 is part of Carrier Air Wing 5 at MCAS Iwakuni.

Here are VRC-30's CODs in FSX and they turned out great. In the package, I'll include a modified ADE file of Jim Dhaenen's and John Stinstrom's scenery of NAS North Island.
