Whilst looking around Glasgow Extreme, last night, there were three occasions 
when FSX simply disappeared. Not the usual route, accompanied by phone home 
mesages etc, simply a "now you see, it now you don't" experience.
On both occasions I was in Tower view when it happened.
At first I suspected that the claimed FSX compatibillity of the scenery might 
be slightly overopimistic. Now I suspect it has more to do with the aircraft.

On both occasions I was using aircraft imported from FS9. One was the 
Aerodesigns A320, the other the EMB170. I'd previously noticed that changing to 
spot view has different results, from those with the Default FSX a/c. With the 
Defaults, cycling with the S key takes me through Tower, Spot Plane, some 
unidentified view which is possibly to allow a check on gear and flaps, then a 
return to Panel view. When an FS9 a/c is used there seem to be just two views 
available. I'm beginning to suspect that this may be the cause of the 
disappearing FSX.

Any ideas in the usual unmarked brown envelope.

Meanwhile, if I run FS9 a/c I'm avoiding the outside views. I'm also using them 
with FSX Default panels, until I've constructed versions that exclude gauges 
that FSX doesn't send warnings about.

Early days yet.
