2.5.6 has introduced this on aircraft. It even happens on the A10C, and only on the left engine. Probably just a "kink" with the new coding. I also hope that they will sort this out.

Today, we observed with my friends that when the Hornet begins to have black smoke, all Hornets in the mission begin to have black smoke at the same time and stop smoking in black at the same time.

The black smoke is obviously a bug. Don't need to be an SME to see that.

+1 Also seeing thick black engine exhaust with the F-18 on the latest open beta patch. Exhaust continues to be visible even after completely shutting down the engines on the carrier/ground. Happens in all missions.

I hadn't noticed it until saw it on a mission. I don't know if the mission settings affect it (early morning, June 1, Caucasus). Definitely an issue. Just compare it to the smoke coming from the MiG-29.
