This may sound a little strange LOL But do any other A Netters ever think that some of the uncommon type of emergency exits are pretty intriguing. Initially i think of the floor window exits on the DC-8 The 727 200 rear door exits with the windows , small exit on u/d of 747 100?

The plug hatch on the dc9 was always intriguing, not sure how that ever got certified, but then it again, it was the 1960s

I feel that the elliptical overwing exits on the Gulfstream series aircraft are quite unusual, particularly since the FAA was concerned that passengers "of size" could not fit through them.

The A310 and DC-10/MD-11 overwing slide is quite different as the off-wing slide goes over the leading edge of the wing, rather than the trailing edge (i.e. as seen on B-747, B-767, B-777-300ER, A346, A380, A320, etc.) The DC-10/MD-11 also had the unusual feature (for an overwing slide) to have a detachable slide/raft component.

Russian airlines have a remarkable number of steps for their evac slide deployment (e.g. Tu-154s http://safety.mania.ru/img/aeroflot_tu154mb_2.jpg) They still have canvas slides too!



Release your seat-belts and get out! Leave everything!

from looking at photos of the position of the 2L/R door on the 747SP, it appears that the slide at these doors also goes off the wing leading edge:

BA's 1-11-400s had canvas slides stored in a compartment in the vestibule ceiling which were complicated to access and deploy (the first to exit had to shin down the slide, etc) these were replaced with automatic inflatable slides in the 1980s (within 5 years of their retirement more or less)

IIRC the Trident was the same

I always think the 757/767-300 doors 3 exit is unusual in that it is A) always armed, and B) a drop-down design (was the A310 over-wing exit always armed?)

here's a bad quality clip of the 757 3R slide deployment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URQdtttww68

Another is the 4 L and R on the L-1011 much smaller than the others as a different type of exit I also noticed that ATA on their L15 added a very slim exit door just aft of the wing? It looks like it is very narrow
