You probably didn't install/extract things properly, Aircraft must go into $FG_ROOT/Aircraft - and for them to show up in any launcher/frontend, the "aircraft cache" would need to be rebuilt (that is, if you are even using a launcher). It's hard for us to provide better help here if you don't provide any background information, i.e. what you did, how you did that etc.

Alright, I'll try installing it again and see how it goes.

This should be very easy to install. Simply extract to FlightGear/data, merge all the folders, and overwrite anything it wants to overwrite. Just be sure to backup your data directory in case something goes wrong. I've had several issues here and there that required me to completely remove the data directory and reinstall FG. Without the backup, I'd lose all my aircraft and stuff.

In case of doubt, always use a git branch for new stuff/experiments and make sure to keep a pristine master branch, so that you can easily pull from the "origin" repository (gitorious) - you can have your own branch where you merge important stuff. It's way easier to learn how to use git like this, than keeping several huge copies of FGDATA around , also it's much more convenient and manageable like this, because git is a little smarter about differences, versions, revisions and applying changes.

They used to lead to massive flaming and bashing. :P I fear that might have killed it.

can someone make the F-16 Bombable compatible? like the F-15E or F-15C's infinite bombs and missles :D

I can't see the enemies even when I'm very close to them. :roll:
