You wouldn't happen to know who used to own it would you???? I'd be interested in knowing where the ex Empire/Piedmont/Usair F28's ended up going. I know our F28 cargo doors were hinged on the bottom, but I can't remember if there were 3 of them or not. I do know that the F100 has 2 doors for the fwd cargo bin and they are hinged on top. Maybe NKP S2 can remember about the F28's.
Is this an F28-4000? Does this plane have small a rear service door on the left hand side?
Two cargo doors for one bin just makes it easier and quicker to load. I guess that sometimes the manufacturers did things to make their planes more marketable.
One more thing. Be careful with the oxygen system. If it's not reset in the proper sequence after a test, you'll be repacking the masks the next time power is applied. Guaranteed!!!!
