747 Door Question

Tue Jul 13, 2004 2:28 am

I have noticed for quite some time this alcove with something inside of it on the 747 door. In this picture, http://aviation-safety.net/pictures/displayphoto.php?id=990035&vnr=1&kind=E, it is on the top right corner of the door.

Any help as to what it is would be great.

Thanks.  Smile

I believe it is the floodlight to illuminate the area in an evacuation.

It is the emergency evacuation door area illumination light. Lorm wins the prize.

D'uh. I guess I should read the entire question next time: "it is on the top right corner of the door."

I don't know if you guys have noticed it... there are external lights below each passenger door as well as by the cargo doors. I noticed at times after they ramp agents finished unloading the cargo from the aircraft they would turn on all the lights for a while... what are the lights for? Seen it on the B744s, B777s and B767s...

Thanks
