Aliens?

Did you ever see that movie the Truman Story (I think) with that funny Canadian actor Jim Carey?

Seriously, what did you install or change recently?

I installed a wings of power p51 and then thats when it happened. Then I found this problem out. I unistalled it and then it still didnt help so then I restored my computer to an earlier time and that didnt change anything either. And I just tried what karl said and it didnt work.

Is it just at one airport or does it do this everywhere, like the above said it normaly is the last thing you installed but you said you removed it, have you installed any other software not relating to FS perhaps?

Nope this blank white sheet follows me everywhere. Doesnt matter if it is a airport or if I am over an ocean etc. I can not fly over it or get away from it.

looks like you are missing texture files to me... do you use flight environment or any of those add ons?

In my opinion, as belgeode stated, the installation of that program has deleted some texture files. (or overwritten them)

Consequently uninstalling the program itself isnt going to help.

I believe the only fix would be to uninstall and then reinstall FS9 again.

I agree with the above posts that you're missing texture files. I doubt very much however that the installation of the WWII P-51 caused the problem.

You're stating that you restored your computer to an earlier time... the question is really exactly WHEN you did that.

We all know that we shouldn't do it, but we've all done it and will keep doing it in moments of excitement that is, install and/or uninstall more than one item at a time and to top it up we remember that RESTORE OPTION.
Well, that restore option has pulled me out of tight spots on more than one occasion --BUT-- it can become your undoing where fs9 texture files are concerned.
EXAMPLE: You've just installed new scenery and as pointed out by belgeode some of the original scenery files were overwritten. If you decide to do a System Restore NOW, it's likely that the new texture files will be deleted but the old (original) ones won't be restored because they've already been overwritten.
It's happened to me with ground textures once and I've learned my lesson: Never try to restore the original textures with the Operating System's "System Restore" function.

Ok, what to do? Of course Air-Head's suggestion to re-install fs9 will solve your problem. Depending on the amount of add-ons you have this could be a daunting task though. In that case you might be able to recover your original (missing) textures from the CD. Check out Liono's post here: https://forum.flyawaysimulation.com/forum/topic/11845/here-is-complete-list-of-what-is-on-each-fs9-disk/ -if memory serves, I was able to recover my missing ground textures with MSGAME8.CAB located on disc 3.
If you decide to go down that road, you might lose some of your add-on textures if you have any. It's worth a try... if everything goes haywire you can still re-install fs9 from scratch.

Good luck 😀

Very much thanks guys I am very thankful. Tailhook good to hear from you I havent heard or seen ya here or the topics I usually look in. I did what air-head did and did a reinstall. I had a bunch of add-ons so even now I am still in the process of installing them.

Good to hear that you're on your way to recovery bawls and that a fresh install isn't too much trouble.

A little reminder: If you're installing freeware scenery that comes with an .exe file, create a temporary folder and target that when you run the .exe.
This way none of your original textures will be overwritten. Then you can back up the original ones before you replace them with the new ones. The manual method, a little cumbersome at times but definitely safer.

Enjoy your fresh install 😎
