do you have installed some addons for cfs3? probably or something has changed the cfs3 configuration or is a temporaneous problem, try also if f6 key works...i read that sometimes after some unsuccesfully tries, the f7 key works again. Let me know if you have some success

I have put on several add-ons including bombsights.
I have updated to 3.1
I replaced the Aircraft/shared folder with a backupsmiley
The bombardier works in the B-25C, A-26B & C, Mossie Mk IV, B-26 C; but no bombsights on any plane.

reading what you have installed i suppose something has changed on your system and has creates the problem...i have 2 ideas try them...first idea is:
try to change the key of the bombardier seat into cfs3 settings.
Second idea ask to someone to give you a copy of his cfs3 config file that usually is into main Cfs3 folder and see the difference with yours...do not overwrite yours with the copy or you have more problems...
Another way could be back xp at the original configuration in the day you remember all was working, but in this case you will lost all your files, mail you have downloaded in the days after.

I'll give it a try. Is there a stock bombsight that came with the game? If not can you suggest a bombsight addon?

I got it. Apparently not all light bombers had bombsights, that is one problem. The bombsight problem was solved by: 1) be in virtual cockpit view
2) hit F7, if the plane has a bombsight the bombardier view appears 3) if no bombsight is in view hit F3 and there it is. Thanks for all you timely responses and advise.smiley
