Second Emergency Exit

Fri Nov 29, 2002 5:41 am

In two of the photo's below, ZK-NBJ has only one emergency exit but in a more recent photo the aircraft has two. Was a second exit retrofitted? If so why?

ZK-NBJ is one of several ex-Britannia B767-200s operated by Air New Zealand - as such it has always had 2 overwing exits on each side. It was orginally G-BLKW in Britannia service.

On the first photos they appear not to have been outline painted as they are not actually required in low-density configuration, but they are still visible...

I think that it's not the same aircraft. They may have retired the one with 1 over-wing exit and replaced it with one that has 2 over-wing exits but the new aircraft was given the same tail number as the old 767 that was retired.

Thanks Much,
Daniel

Daniel, For some reason, I believe that theory is wrong.

Mr. AirNZ, If you look closely at the first photo, you will see a space where the emergency exit is (and a small sticker above the window) Look at the outlined emergency exit, and tell me what you see above the window. Question is now answered.
