The closed jump door on Beech 200C VH-NSD. To provide clearance when sliding the door forward, the external handle is now retractable. Two recessed hand holds facilitate moving the door inwards and forward. Note that the shadow cast by the wind deflector strip creates the illusion that the door is cracked outwards! Note also that the piano hinge fitting for the airstair door remains in place.Picture: Noel Nas
