It means that or
The texture package is empty.
In the aircraft.cfg file , the name from the texture package you want to use is not EXACTLY the same as the name from the correct texture map
for Air canada A 319 from PAI
in the aircraft.cfg file:
title=PAI A319 ACA
sound= texture=ACA<------is the name from texture.ACA-map
description=Project AI A319 Only for use with AI Traffic!
With PAI you get a selfinstaller, best is to unzip all the complete packages you want in to a new folder (all the XXX.PAI-files) and than start the installer and select all of them at once.
you will see the installer do the work for you.
Also make sure that you put the texture map in the correct aircraft folder.
example A319 repaints don't work for A320

Look inside the texture map of the faulty repaint, in the case of the SNBA A319 there should be 2 bitmaps, one called A319_L and the other called A319_T, check if the names are correct and/or if one of the 2 isn't missing.
For other models ex. B737 ,take one that works and compare the names of the BMP's with another one that doesn't work.
maybe the names aren't correct or there are some missing BMP's in the repaints that don't work (properly).
To check if the selfinstaller works okay, just download a repaint and install it manually ( ex A319 SNBA).
If this does the job just uninstall the automatic PAI installer, download it again and reinstall.

Mmm, I would've thought that it had to do with the texture files. Sometimes when there are too many AI a/c around I might get one or two that appear gray because it takes time for the PC to load allll those textures... But it is temporary...
Sorry. If you have the cash, you might look into getting UT from flight 1

Ok, the only PAI part I have on just now is British AIRWAYS, if I go to Gatwick i see 1 737 in the BA colours, but everything else is grey, the same at Heathrow where only 1 or 2 a/c are in BA c/s, the rest are grey

How much virtual memory do you have?
Be sure to have enough.
Also since you only have installed 1 package (BA), why don' you decompile the traffic.BGL and see what you get in the aircraft.txt-file, maybe it gives the wrong names for the planes you use.
Also ,to make sure, check if you don't have a traffic.bgl in some active scenery folder outside of FS9/scenery/world/scenery , if so take it out because they are known to give problems if they are not in the correct folder.

It sounds as though the .mdl or model file for some of your aircraft has been updated and the textures are for an older version.
This happened to me. Either the whole aircraft was grey or only the tail showed up in colour and the rest was grey. If you download a texture file for PAI then, you have to make sure it is the correct version for the aircraft you are putting it on.
Some aircraft come with different variants. ie 747-400PW, 747-400GE, 747-400RR. If you put the wrong texture on the the wrong variant it also will not show up properly.
Here is something to look for:
My PAI 747-200 is like this.
The texture files for my 747-200GE variant are "PAI_742GE_T"
The texture files for my 747-200PW variant are "pai_742pw_t"
The texture files for my 747-200RR variant are "pai_742rr_t"
If you put say the RR textures on the variant with GE engines, then too you will get grey or better said, NO textures.
It has nothing to do with your graphics card or memory. It is just like trying to add Posky textures to the default aircraft.
