    I have some of the default planes. I have removed those that didn't exist in the 1970s. The funny thing is, it works in my other computer, and the regular FS9 works in this one, but not the Silver...

    HardCub

    I just discovered this post, and it has helped me a lot. I'm able to use planes which have just been sitting in my hangar due to fuzzy VC gauges.
