I've install Auckland 2005 on my FS9.
After choosing Auckland and a Gate or Runway I see that the wheels of my aircraft have
disappear half way into the ground.
The AI Aircrafts from UT-Traffic are correctly showing up on the surface.
Can anybody help me out?

Somebody else asked this question not long ago, but I can't find the thread... The response was to edit the contact points in the airplane cfg file. Maybe someone can find the thread and link it for you, sorry I can't be of more help.

Thank you for your reply!
I think, that I didn't explain the problem well.
The problem occurs only at Auckland 2005 airport. At every airport else the wheels
are right on the ground, where they belong.
So, maybe it is a scenery problem?

It sounds like a problem where the altitudes of the mesh and the airport data are not set quite the same.

Adding to Jon's post
Many scenery designers elevate the airport scenery for what ever reason. When they do this it changes the hard floor that the airplane wheels set on.
Any scenery designer that trys to trick the airport elevation must also build a preload Airport Header with the new scenery altitude hard floor.

Look in your Auckland 2005 scenery folder for file
and remove it, per the author.
