ok, so where did you get it from? did you download it using the internal flightgear launcher or did you download it manually from a hanger somewhere?

quite a few of those large craft are very "heavy" in the graphics department... there are many folks who cannot fly them because of the graphics "weight"... there's also problems caused to others in multiplayer with lowend systems when these craft fly into range... their systems crash or go unresponsive until the craft is out of range...

"Why not?" said Gurder.

It is from the default hangar but I think at this point it is just the length of the flight plan because the plane does shorter flights just fine.

can you share that flightplan? have you tried it in less "heavy" craft? eg: UFO or maybe the c172p with fuel-freeze enabled

I have just found a interesting morsel of info' on AMD graphics that ULPS (Ultra Low Power State) which is enabled permamently can be an issue with these cards causing stuttering and loss of FPS, but you can disable easily look at this link:https://community.amd.com/thread/176003 hope this helps others?
