Hi Al

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but could you please advise which aircraft you are referring to, when this missing airfoil message appears?

Also is the aircraft from X-Plane or a 3rd party addon and if so, which one?

            Thank you for responding, the plane is

                                A Just flight Dutchess model 76 from Xplane.org.

        Regards Al.

Hi Al

Thanks for the info and whilst I do not have this particular aircraft in my copy of X-Plane 11, please have a look in your aircraft folder to see if there is also an Airfoil subfolder?

If there is, have a look in the Airfoil subfolder to see if there are a bunch of xxxxxx.afl files, similar to the photograph below?
