I think is a bug, happened to me, restarted the flight and it was ok

(was like the wonder woman's jet... invisible, only the nav lights were visible)

I'm resurrecting this thread to vouch for the issue, as well as give a potential "fix".

I experienced the "ghost cockpit and airplane" issue in the C208 Caravan this weekend. Interestingly, for me it was ONLY an issue in that airplane and at a specific airport (CYQI). I could load the plane properly at a different airport, and I could load other planes properly at CYQI. I "restarted" the flight from the ESC menu, I exited to main menu and restarted, I closed the sim and reopened, rebooted the PC, checked for updates... nothing would clear the issue. 

Finally, even though I had no cockpit, I decided to fly the plane anyway - at least I had a glorious forward view with nothing in the way. Somewhere before reaching 1,000', the cockpit magically re-appeared. The external model was also now viewable.

Either taking the plane up for a spin, or allowing the sim more time to load in the cockpit seemed to remedy the issue. That was the one and only time I have run into the bug after many hours of flying.

There's a bug in there somewhere, but I couldn't really find any cause or reason.
