What airline did that come from?
|Quoting ha763 (Reply 3):|
Midwest Express. Notice the small stripe of gold on the bottom in the OP picture.
|Quoting Skydrol (Reply 4):|
My question was if this is unique to the DC-9 series, or if this is common to all airplanes? I never noticed the instructions on the outside of an overwing exit before (likely because I wasn't paying attention to this detail).
|Quoting Dalmd88 (Reply 5):|
Every type I've ever come in contact with opens from the outside also. On the 757 if you use the exterior handle the overwing slide will deactivate and not inflate. I've never tried it. We always disconnect the slide before opening the hatches.

External opening is required by 14 CFR 25.809 (b).
