as ssen above, the C-9 has two sets of airstairs on it, one in the tail and on on the nose door. does the C-40 also have two sets of stairs? does it even have the integral stair in the L1 door?

one other question, is the C-40 fleet capable of in-flight refueling?

From seeing them around the system, i think they only have a single airstair and they definately do not have have AR capabilities.

No, the C-40 is not capable of in-flight refueling.

Here's a picture of the C-40 with the airstairs deployed.

From my experiences refueling navy fighters, I breathe a sigh of relief when I say the C-40 does not have in-flight refueling capabilities.....

Though not the C-40, the Boeing picture looks a lot like the one on the T-43 in these two left side images.

A C-40A, the USN version, is virtually identical to a, let's say...Southwest Airliners 737-700. The were purchased using the standard commercial means. They are combi aircraft, though.

- The C40 I saw here at IND last week had an airstair forward and one aft, both were deployed. http://airliners.net/discussions/military/read.main/22361/ I only wish I had a digital camera with me at the time!

Having flown on one last month, I can confirm that they have two sets of airstairs. One in the front and one aft.

The FWD airstairs deploy with a touch of a button, however, the aft airstairs have to be deployed manually. They fold-up and tuck away into the rear galley.

I was a TSS on the C40 for VR-58, the Sunseekers in Jacksonville. The aft stairs on our C40's are hokey and they don't work very well in cold climates. When I say cold, I mean anything below 60 degrees. We usually use mobile stairs for the back. Also, the C40 differs from civilian models in 2 key ways. The landing gear mainmounts are larger and designed for heavier load capabilities. The wings that it has are the wings from a 737-900, as opposed to the standard 700 model.
