- what OS (Windows Xp/Vista, Mac etc.) are you running?
- what FlightGear version do you use?
- what graphics card do you have?
- does the problem occur with any aircraft, at any airport?
- where did you download your aircraft/scenery from?
- is there any output printed to the console (black window)?
- copy&paste your commandline (tick the "Show commandline box on the last page of FGRun or the "Others" section on the Mac launcher).

Please report any bugs not specific to an aircraft on the issue tracker.
To run FlightGear on old computers with bad OpenGL support, please take a look at this wiki article.

Additional Settings problem

I want to set detailed weather before starting FlightGear by setting --prop:/sim/gui/dialogs/metar/mode/global-weather=0 and --prop:/sim/gui/dialogs/metar/mode/local-weather=1, but it starts with basic weather selected in 'Environment -> Weather', again.

And the second one is visibility setting in 'View -> Earthview orbital rendering -> Visibility'. I'm setting --prop:/environment/effective-visibility-m=125000, but it starts default value (about 30000). And it doesn't even let me change it in via property browser, but it can only be changed in its menu.

FlightGear version is 2018.2.2.

Kind regards.
