[I] My plane is black except when I zoom in

This is a common occurrence if you run low on graphics memory.  
 
The solution to this is either a reboot of Microsoft Flight Simulator X, or installation of compressed textures.
 
Some of the IRIS Flight Simulation Software products (including the  IRIS - Pro Training Series - Pilatus PC-21 [FSX]) have the option of both 32 Bit and DXT5 textures.
 
If you have questions as to whether or not your product has the DXT5 textures please send us a support ticket.  
 
Please use the "Submit Ticket" link up there on the right.
