Hello: Do not remenber had seen this “window opening syastem” before. Just internally unlatch and move back. When thinking at the pilot’s windows, I can’t imagine this system.
Any photo please?
BEG is Belgrade, Serbia...Google is a fantastic resource. On to the incident, perhaps they landed with the parking brake set? Or had some form of brake malfunction or anti skid fault that locked up all four wheels? I wonder if the crew was aware of a hydraulic and/or braking system prior to the lan...Jump to post

It's not fumy. It only can't happen to a aircraft bureaucratic.
I had seen even a Catering's personnel deploying slides.
Some companies even strong penalize the person who deploy one of them.
And of course, it's the price to pay: Slides should be able
to be deployed by any one.

And.. There are also Drin Mast on the fuselaje, to direct used basin water outside (on the old a/c this water went onto toilet tank), which is the reason that in some airports water to the toilets is closed when at apron.

I believe there is also another issue, that is of legal nature that, even if they were allowed again, it would keep them from flying to the US: Weren't there claims by Cuban exiles in the US that could force CU aircraft to be seized?
