I like the Eastern Airlines 727s or DC9s in the background.

The 727 is my favorite airliner and I have many fond childhood memories of flying on them. I was pleasantly surprised to see something I've never seen - an additional exit forward of the wing. I had no idea thus existed on the 727! Would love to know more about it. Anyone?
