Well, what would have happened if it came open in flight.
I would not know... I guess that the pressure gradient over the wing would keep a door at the underside of the wing pressed closed.
When the door would open during take-off, it could get ripped off the plane, causing minor damage to the plane, increasing fuel consumption due to worse aerodynamics, etc. The door would likely end on the runway and need to be cleaned up to avoid accidents with planes using the runway later.
For planes with rear-mounted engines lost wing parts could get ingested by an engine, causing loss of the engine.

Yup, on the A330/340, there is an extendable metal ladder in the nose wheel shaft, via which you can climb down to the tarmac.

That controller sounds awesome.

I love this, after he tells that American with the problem to cross the runway to take care of whatever issue they were having:

Because getting out of line at Kennedy would take a lot of time trying to get back to the gate.  Then, once the tiny little door was closed, you'd probably have to refuel and get back in line, at the rear of a 2 hour+ line.  I don't blame the guys for just jumping out and doing it themselves.  I have done the same thing.

I'm sure you didn't exit via the nose gear well...  Wink

Could someone else re-upload this file? It doesn't seem to be working now.

Does this remind anyone else of Yurie in the movie Armagedon?  "I am stepping outside!"
