Hello everyone!!

I am doing a research on "Not door mounted evacuation slides/raft". I found out that the Boeing 757,767, 747 and I also believe the 777 have Off-wing slides/ramps, which are mounted in compartments outside the pressurised cabin. I got lots of data from Airbus Planes and its the same with A318-320, 340-600 and A380. The upper deck slides of the A380

Big version: Width: 2560 Height: 1920 File size: 1622kb


as well as the "inner" slides of the A321

Big version: Width: 450 Height: 331 File size: 86kb
A321 Slide enclosure


Can anybody help me with comments, webpages, photos, technical stuff or even the AMM ATA 25 for the Boeing aircraft?

Do you guys know if the mentioned planes were the only ones with evac devices in enclosures outside the cabin?

THX Doktor

I've not changed an overwing slide on the -600 yet however i know that the bottles for inflation are found in the rear of the MLG. Both those bottles AND the handle onboard must be disarmed before opening the door... There is also a duplicate inspection after they are disarmed or armed...

Disarming of the bottles is done by installing a safety pin and disconnecting the electrical connector.

Doors 2 and 3 on the A321 are fuselage-mounted slides. You can see a video of it at http://youtube.com/watch?v=62d-_al5bCI (They are not off-wing)

A Discovery Channel program in the US about the A380 showed the off-wing slide being tested at the Goodrich aircraft interior products division. It's availible at their store.

There is a photo of the A340 off-wing slide in the Goodrich photo database...you need to sign up at http://212.125.72.174/cgi-bin/goodrich/login.cgi

I have some pictures that I can email you of accidental off-wing slide deployments...if you want to message me with your email I can send them to you.

Early variants of the Boeing 747 overwing exit at Door 3 had the off-wing slide as a fuselage mounted slide as well...so the door inflated a ramp, but slide itself inflated from the body of the aircraft.

That information is highly sensitive and i doubt you'll find much of the maintenance manual online...

The only Boeing manuals you´ll find online for public access are the airport planing manuals: http://www.boeing.com/assocproducts/aircompat/plan_manuals.html
But I doubt you´ll find your required informations there...

Indeed the 777-300 has an overwing exit and hence a slide assembly located behind a panel just aft of the wing trailing edge.
