Anybody know what part of the 2d Panel might be killing the aircrafts ground shadow? It only disappears if the aircraft in question is the first thing loaded. I've found I can "cure" the problem by removing(suppressing) the main 2d panel in several aircraft. So far I've had to block (//) the 2d panels for Alphasims P-51,P-47 and F7F 2004 models that have been migrated to FSX. The simTECH_Do335 has the same problem and the same solution. It is not all 2004 conversions.
