Flight Simulator X is a bit crazy

Today I was flying from Chubu Nagoya Airport to Kansai Intl. with an Airbus A-320. I was just approaching the destination airport, when an error came up.

It says that the computer run out of memory. The computer is running Vista 64 and has around 8GB of RAM.

This is really a weired behaviour :s
