Starlionblue:

That's the outflow valve for the pressurization system.

Best I can remember from my dc-10 days the smaller one to the aft is the thrust recovery valve and also part of the press. sys.

I think this one must be near the top of the most commonly asked questions on A.net

You're mistaken. I don't have a clue. I just fake it pretty well Big grin

Ask me something about computers. Then, yes I have a clue.

Taxiing out at YUL one time the ground controller commented that we possibly had a hole in the fuselage near the L2 door. Of course we thought he was looking at the outflow valve, but what do you do at that point? You return to the ramp and have maintenance check it out. Cost us about half an hour....

This, I suppose, is why more ATC folks should spend a few days every year running around with a ramper or two.

Never heard a word about it. We coded the delay appropriately and that was the end of it, as far as I know.
