ERJ Gear Doors

Tue Sep 26, 2000 8:24 am

Has anyone else noticed the difference in the nose gear doors in the ERJ-135/145 and the EMB-120? From what I understand, Embraer didn't change much in the fwd fuselage when they developed their little jets. It looks like they did, however, change how the gear doors work. In the jets the doors are one piece and stay open. On the Brasilia they're split and the fwd half close again.
