there's still in most aircraft.cfg a double entry for point.3

I found some more bugs in the panel

clicking the EHSI opens the EADI (I could fix that, changing the gauge on the respective window)

clicking the EADI doesn't open the EADI. The mouse indicates a clickspot but nothing happens. Shift-5 works, but as mentioned opens the wrong window.

clicking the FMS doesn't open the FMS. However shift-3 works. 

Hard to believe, obvious bugs like this are still not fixed. Cry

the performance text of the aircraft.cfg of all DC-8 variants have an error

performance="Cruise Speed\n0.82 Mach 460 kts\n\Engines \nPratt & Whitney JT4A-3 turbojets ...

The slash disables a proper performance display on the aircraft selection screen.

"kts\n\" should be "kts\n\n "

performance="Cruise Speed\n0.82 Mach 460 kts\n\nEngines \nPratt & Whitney JT4A-3 turbojets ...
