Re: Found a landing gear door washed up on a beach - aircraft ID?

Looks like a 757 aft R/H nose landing gear door https://i.ibb.co/MMfm61j/Datei-001.png aft L/H shown You might be right. Eight screw holes between the stripe and the edge of the door.

It's the biggest and most iconic plane. Everyone wants to see big things blow up, not little things. Well, there's other biggies out there too, right? (L1011, DC-10, Super 70 DC-8s, and in the 1990s, MD-11s, A330s, and A340s.) True*, but very very few non-aviation fan people would be able to identi...
