Emergency Exit

Sun Mar 25, 2001 6:25 pm

Can anyone explain how the small exit in the cockpit works. Do they have a ladder inside to help them out in an emergency, and does the door lift out?

As far as I know, they get out by climbing on top of the crew seats, then out the exit, where the intertia reels let them descend with their backs to the fuselage safely to the ground.
