maybe the second one is the (legacy) 2D panel? try hitting Shift-P and see if it dissappears.

If not, maybe you can provide a screenshot and a description of the plane you're flying and where you got it from?

Welcome to flightgear :)

Hi and welcome!

That sounds like you somehow ended up in vertical stereo mode (as that will render the menu inaccessible). Try launching FlightGear with the below option. If you're using the launcher, you can add this line in the Settings > Additional settings box.
Code: Select all

If that and Daniel's suggestion don't help we definitely need a screenshot to diagnose the problem.

Airports: EHAM, EHLE, KSFO
Aircraft: 747-400
