nice pics of the plane. to bad it didn't have the emergency panel...

There was definitely room to fit a separate emergency release compartment. This would have been directly to the right. The area was dead space on this particular jet.

Correct, the whole area is a void. that's why the emergency system was placed there. the cable would run down the framing like wiring for cable or telephone lines. not much to it.

I wonder when the decal on the top of the door was fixed. says it on the inside of the door as well?. reads

    This exit has been
designed and constructed
      so that it
     CANNOT BE
  OPENED IN FLIGHT

This brings up a question.  Was the control for lowering the aft stairs changed when the Cooper vane was installed?  That is, was the lowering of the stairs more complicated before the vane was installed and then simplified with the installation of the vane.

Hope everyone had a happy new year....my has not been so good. been in bed since Sunday with the flu and now have strep throat. I only get the flu every 5 years or so but when I do, it's a whopper...

I used to think I got the flu annually. Until about 5 or 6 years ago when I actually did get the flu. Then I realized that what I normally got was just a cold accompanied by a fever. The flu whipped my ass for about two weeks then. Hope I never have to deal with that again. Hope you feel better soon.

Feel better, Shut. And know you have company. I've been dealing bronchitis since the week before Christmas. Still coughing a bunch.

what I fail to see is a simple statement from the crew saying they flew a straight line? how hard would that of been to explain to everyone involved with the plotting. then we have no indication it was way off and to the west when they obviously seen the map after it was produced. they were part of it? everyone wants to tell the pilots where they flew?

Could we get Lat/Long on that?

I spoke with Bruce Kitt about this piece. he didn't believe it would last that long in the elements.
