This is a fix for those cases where the Douglas B18A (B18AVX.ZIP) or Boeing B-9 (BB9VX.ZIP) cause FSX to crash or give a overstressed error message when the airplane is loaded. By Paul Clawson.

Some flyers have reported FSX crashes or they get an overstressed error message when they open a flight using one of the subject aircraft. This doesn't happen on my system (yes, I do have crash detection turned on in the simulator) so I appreciate it being brought to my attention. There are some entries in the aircraft geometry section of the aircraft.cfg file that are set to zero that need real numbers. I have included a corrected .cfg file for both planes. Just open the appropriate folder and copy the enclosed aircraft.cfg file into the correct airplane folder in FSX. Overwrite the existing file. That's it.
