Hi, make sure that your textures in aircraft folder be 32bit, 16bit, 8bit, DXT1 or DXT3 format, if your textures are in 24bit format then they wont showup in FS, hope this help.

Yes, it is best to save them in DXT format with mipmaps in the scenery TEXTURE folder. Otherwise you could get problems in them showing.
