Hmm, doesn't look like double wings - instead, it looks like the main part of your wing is simply missing. All I'm seeing in that shot is the control surfaces: the slats (which are on the front of the wing) are hovering out there, then there's the engine pylon, and inboard are the spoilers, flaps, and ailerons.Is the camera inside the aircraft? Sometimes when you're inside an aircraft that doesn't have an actual interior you get issues with the model. Usually 3D model polygons only have 1 side visible, so if you look at it from behind in-game it disappears. This *may* be what's happening here.

I remember somebody saying this will happen if you disable shading :-)

probably should upgrade your video card to one that supports shader (not sure what version) technology ti 4600 was a great card in its day i guess the problem you will have is finding an agp card. Shaders are used for wing flex and thats what your video card can't render. check http://www.zipzoomfly Short of that wait for the Vista and DX10 not sure how to disable wing flex maybe turn off special effectsI am sure someone else may have another opinion...good luckGregg D

The GF4 is limited to 1.3 Shaders, Wing Flex requires 2.0 to work correctly otherwise you get that ghosting effect ;)

Hi , I have seen this too, I belive it is the second lot of textures showing to illustrate wing flex. It has to be a video driver issue. roll back your drivers or update them if you are out of dateDal
