Dash 8 Q400 Aft Door Question.

Fri Jun 27, 2003 9:15 am

Hey, I haven't asked a question about a door in some time, so its now time. lol. Anyways, I was wondering how large it is, is it small? I can't tell, It can't be like an A320s! How is it opened from the inside, the turning of a handle, or the lifting up/pulling down of a handle? Where is the handle? Bulkhead, wall, or door itself? Is there a galley or something back there? If Im correct theres a service door on the otherside of 2L? Thanks!
Once again, this post is in reguards to the Dash8-Q400

Wow... You have so much enthusiasm...

I believe all your answers you can find yourself by viewing the virtual tour of a Q400 on the bombardier website. There are virtual tours of all their a/c on the site. The galley on the Q400 is at the back as on the 300 but larger.

Click on 'Virtual Tour' and see for yourself!

Yes there is a service door. On both aft doors you rotate a handle on the door to open. They look similar to a CRJ service door.
