Thanks man! :D I'll run some tests to find out what might be causing it. I haven't seen it crash on mine yet, do you know if you're on the 32 or 64 bit windows version?
Windows 32 Bit
I am going to try to redownload the game. Will keep you posted
Just redownloaded the game and it works! Thanks so much for your help. I also just found out that you planes are destructable and if the plane has no wings at all (even the tail wings and rudder) It still flies. You get about 1 second of full control, then the only control available is the rudder.
