Unable to install P-51 aircraft

Postby jackhulk » Wed Jun 26, 2019 3:39 pm


I'm trying to install the 'North American Aviation P-51D-25-NA' via download, however once the download has completed, there is a blue 'Update' button which when pressed gives error message...

"An error occurred installing the aircraft North American Aviation P-51D-25-NA: Package could not be extracted".

I also tried downloading the zip file and installing manually, but the same error occurs.

Any idea how I can get this installed please?

Thank you

Do you install it from the GUI or do you download it from a website?

I tried both. First from the GUI, and then from website and manual install. Both ways however produce the same result. Try it and you'll see (unless it's just me??).

Same problem here installing the P-51 aircraft. No issues with any other. I'm running Linux Mint 19.2 with a Nvidia graphics card GeForce GTX 960 I installed the newest version of Flightgear, which is awesome, except for the one issue.

Do you have enough hard disk space for it? This is one of the larger sized aircraft packages.
