particulary 727s -- obviously easy to notice -- see red paint in below pictures? -- I am curious -- I have seen blue, green, black --- especially on the left side of the plane (when looking at the plane from outside) -- why is that?

It is contrasting paint that is used to outline an emergency Exit. That is the cockpit sliding window.

Most doors also have a paint outline. Just not as glaring as the red in the picture.

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

Agreed. It may also be a borrowed slider or painted for another operator.

It is not the slider that is painted but the aircraft frame itself. If the window was open the red outline would still be there.

The right hand sliding window on this aircraft can be opened from outside in case of emergency. If you look carefully you´ll see the handle below the window (painted red with placard below). The red color of the window frame helps to identify it as an emergency exit for the rescue teams.

This feature is an optional installation on B737´s too (only the r/h side).



This job sucks!!! I love this job!!!

Red to Depict it is an Emergency Egress point.
The Window can slide Inboard & Aft & can be used as an Emergency Exit with Escape Harness from the Cockpit.
