Well, after spending many minutes (and some entertaining ones at that), I got frustrated enough to download a different version of the C-5 that had no problems and included an accurate panel instead of the default 737.
I immediately flew from Travis AFB to SFO in marginal VFR to celebrate my new found ship and parked it at the UAL gate 16. Whatta cool new toy I have.
I can't beleive I got tired of my ol' FS2002...just didn't know of this outlying community of developers and add-ons.
Thanks all. I'm havin' fun now.
