Does it just flicker like this when you change views, and the textures eventually come on - or does it stay like this?If its only for a second or 3, I'd question the 128mb of vram - and bottlenecking. Although it looks like you've got the sliders well to the left already.Looking close, I think I can see the same on some of the buildings below you doing the same. (building off right wingtip)Regards'Garett

I found that unlike FS9 FSX default aircraft requires this folder and it's textures, in addition to the repaint texture folder (ie: texture.1). This is also what causes the problem when you select the base texture (White) variant for the aircraft, you can't select any other repaint of the same aircraft until FSX restart! My guess it's how they implemented bump mapping on the aircaft!
