Hi Flyboy80 again!

I haven't got any photos specifically of aircraft doors, but I have got accurate technical drawings of doors from both inside and outside which are in our Cabin Attendant Safety Manuals - they also give full door operation instructions in manual (normal) and automatic (emergency) modes, explain about the use of the escape slides or escape sliderafts & ditching survival kits which are all contained in the slide 'bustle' on the inside of the door. I've got door operation procedures and diagrams for DC9-83/727-100/BAC1-11/A320/A300B4/A330-200/757-200/757-200ER/767-300ER/DC10-10/DC10-30 - if you are interested, let me know and I can send you them no problem. I'm not sure if you have much experience in the operation of doors on the various different types, but of the a/c I've flown on the 757 is the winner for needing all the strength you can manage to open & close a door - especially at the 2L/2R Door as it is a slightly larger door than the rest and has a much heavier slideraft inside the slide bustle. If the ground agent has removed the airbridge/steps before you close up for departure (which they're not really supposed to do), it can be quite hard to pull the door inwards to close with one hand, while the other hand holds on to the assist handle inside the door frame to prevent you from falling out of the aircraft! You've also got all the passengers in the mid cabin watching you struggle and making yourself look really feeble! The easiest door to use is the DC10-30; every door has an up and down arrow button on the attendant panel and all you do is press the button until the door is fully opened electrically into the ceiling of the aircraft.
