One of the things I like about the 737 is the variety of configurations it comes in. Here's a good example: Nose gear gravel kit - but no vortex disruptors on the intake lips, cargo door, airstair door in the back, AND the eyebrow window mod.

I'd like to take a walk around this one if I had the chance...

That's one pretty B732.. most capable passenger jet every built, in my humble opinion.

Very Accessable from a Mx angle aircraft.

Quoting ZANL188 (Thread starter):
airstair door in the back

Interestingly, it does not seem to have front airstairs... I was told once by a 737 captain, that there is no such thing as standard. Looks very true for this ship.

Looks really good for an aircraft in service since 1978 and still with the original owner.

According to the Boeing 737 ACAP, it shows that the fwd airstairs is optional for all models.

Thats Interesting.....Normally I've always noticed the Front Airstair door on the B737s....even if its deactivated & sealed with Airstair/carriage removed especially on Freighters to save weight.
Any data on how many B737s were actually configured without Fed airstair & door.

I hadn't seen an airstair in years, (and none on an NG), until I rode on a Ryanair flight a few years back.


What the...?

Yeah, we always say we had a standard fleet until the 2nd airplane showed up.

Looks like the LH 732s did not have the FWD airstairs installed. This ex-AQ 732 was originally with LH and I can't see the door for the stairs.

This picture is not as clear, but it also doesn't look like this LH 732 has the door.

I remember the Ex LH B732s had the hyd pump switches Inverted ie Off was down position & On was in up position.

On the topic.....The Airstair was a mechanism of a lot of sequencing switches...

The OP's picture is combi. It wouldn't make sense to have a forward airstair as it would be useless when flown in a cargo/passenger configuration.
