- 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).

If you experience FlightGear crashes, please report a bug using the issue tracker (can be also used for feature requests).
To run FlightGear on old computers with bad OpenGL support, please take a look at this wiki article.

FlightGear takes over 5 minutes to open when “Fly” is clicked.
Cockpit displays well but plane soon crashes and/or screen dulls and says unresponsive.
Unable to use this program.

Graphical features disabled
Frame rate is only 3

Any help please would be appreciated.

Dependent on what plane and airport, your memory might be full and your computer digging into swap - I'd check that first (assuming 4 GB free means that's really all that's available from your 8 for whatever reason).

You don't mention which version of flightgear so I'm assuming it's the current download? (2018.2.1)

Do you have 'Download scenery automatically' enabled?
