757 Cargo Conversion Question

Fri Nov 06, 2009 4:36 pm

Question, on the FedEx 757's being converted from pax to cargo, what happens to the aft pax / service doors? Do they become de-activated and blanked out?

Just a quick photo search on shows the 757's R2 and L2 doors blanked, but it appear the middle emergency exit doors (for those aircraft equipped with them) appear to be active.

Can anyone speak to how the pax door situation on the cargo conversions?

Depends on the STC.
We operate the B752SF & B752PCF.The former has all doors in place except they are deactivated & used only for maintenance.The functioning doors are L1 & R1.
On the B752PCF....The L1 & R1 doors are eliminated & replaced by a smaller L1 door similiar to the B752PF.
The Inner Main deck has a Sidewall liner covering the entire deck.
I may not win often, but I damn well never lose!!! ;)
