As an agent, I closed a lot of doors from the outside (HP Jetstream, Cessna 402, Piper Navajo, 707, 737, DC-9-80, 757, BAe-146), but not the kind of door in the videos. I have to say that the video looks staged, and I wonder if it is just for show, or if procedures have changed since the last time I closed a door.(1996 or so.)
