In difficulty settings; turn off the hide icons switch. You can also toggle them on and off if you map a key for it.

Did you turn off icons on the difficulty menu? Otherwise you would have had to assign a key to turn them off.

Go into the Controls menu and scroll down the list until you find the entry "Toggle Icons". If there is an assignment for it in the right-hand column, you can use that key. If there is no assignment or you'd like to make your own, click in the right-hand side in that row and then press the key or joystick button you'd like to use. As long as icons are enabled in the difficulty settings for your mission, You can then use that key to toggle between these four settings: no icons; distance (in kilometrs) only; distance and description; and distance, plane type and description.

It's a great idea to use these to learn to estimate distance to other airplanes, especially for gunnery. Try not to develop it as a crutch though, if you might ever like to fly without them (you might surprise yourself). Learn to identify plane types without them, mostly by their shape. German aircraft tend to have square wings and tails, and Allied aircraft rounded or pointed wings. Learn to identify tracer colors, too.

Cheers,
Mike
