Dash 8 classic flight deck door

#1 Post by Qkheavy » Mon Jan 16, 2017 4:42 am

Hello everyone,

Me and my coworkers have been trying to figure out what a bracket for the ballistic flight deck door is for? It's on the upper edge and has a big yellow foam piece that looks like a twinkie on it. Any ideas??

Ive always wondered too. I suspect the foamy bit is so the observer sitting there doesn't crack his head open on that hefty bracket...but what is that random solid bracket even doing there?

That's what we were thinking it was for too but like you said, why is the bracket there? It's not like it really does anything
