Look at the door of this aircraft and tell me if this is a freak of nature or can doors really fold outward and downwards on the 732 look at the back door!!!

In fact I don't know, but maybe is there an option to have a folding-stair aft door on B-732???
I know that you can have left FRONT door stair, coming out the fuselage below the door.

it looks to me that the door has air stairs attached to it. So it could be something like the CRJ door. that is the only thing that I can compare it to.

It was an option for the rear door. I have never seen evidence of it used on the front doors. There are retracable stairs stored underneath floorlevel for the front door, available as an option, however.
