I completely agree with you. We have a few aircraft in our fleet at C8
that you literally have to grab the handle, rotate it upward, and hang on the top half with both hands and much of your body weight to close; seem worse when it is cold outside.
Is it really dangerous to have doors like this floating around? Should the crew write it up? I've always considered it just an annoyance. Are you at the repair station in BNA
that had a/c 314 down there last month? I think there have been a few a/c down there, come to think of it. I take it you guys do a lot of EMB work as well? Our Mx guys are always talking about how the experienced Saab techs down there are working on the EMBs and the work on our Saabs is slowed down.
