Its a recorded flight. I have no idea where those are stores. Search your hard drive for *.fgtape

An idea: to save looking everywhere (including multiple installations) have a look in
data/defaults.xml of the FG you are using for tape-directory
eg (for me):
<tape-directory type="string" userarchive="y">//Users/cm/Library/Application Support/FlightGear/Export/</tape-directory>

Have a look there and, If you see something in there that ends . .fgtape that you don't obviously need, remove it. Especially if it is something like ..... recovery.fgtape

Yup.....in the Flight Recorder Control (from the F10 menu) the "Maintain Recovery Snapshot" box got ticked and was generating the annoying, never ending warning. Fixed and on with the Game.

Thanks You guys!!

Having issues with certain aircraft either the program just crashes or throws up errors with :

BAC TSR2 - crash to desktop
F-14 A/B - fatal exception illegal argument
F-15 (Richards) - fatal exception illegal argument
VooDoo's J350e DRAKEN - crash to desktop

A few others occasionally.

Any Ideas ?

It may be the latest, but far from the greatest. Still not ready for primetime.
Being one who gets frustrated after a version upgrade the majority of the time, I'm more than happy to let the new features achieve a measure of maturity before I'll jump in to that hot mess.
Still flying 2020.1.x, which also has a few or our birds in the hangar roost not behaving properly either, just not as many as y'all describe. I'd describe the "greatest" as being the version that allows the most people to participate in the experience, while having been tested enough to not lose things like live weather etc.

Its not the FG version thats the issue, its old code being depreciated in the actual aircraft thats the issue.

@Stuart
Are you sure with the FG-version ? The Vulcan works fine with 2020.3.1 !

my previous nightly build would not load with the vulcan. The nightly build I got on Tuesday is fine with it.

Update :

How's this for weird ?

Pressing the left wheel brake key ',' (comma) in the EF2000 causes a fatal exception error and crashes the sim...

The strangeness continues....

It's good to see folks testing using the nightly build - but do remember that the quality will vary a lot.

My advice is to keep your favourite nightly safe; and the easiest way I found to do this is to simply make a note of the one that you installed and keep the zip files safe in case you download a new one which is broken.
