    A unique attitude on approach!

    Does it have a cargo door?

    That's how all 200s land, you have to fly them to about 50 feet before you level out and flare. It has a cargo door that is 94 x 77 inches on the left side right aft of the pax door. I guess they didn't paint an outline around it like all the other doors

    Thanks for the info. Interesting configuration. There is certainly a niche market for this aircraft.

    Thank you for the link. A class E cargo compartment meets rigid specifications though still a bit "iffy" to carrying items such as metal lithium ion batteries or battery powered equipment.

    The picture in the link shows the cargo door very well. Excellent feature and nice to see they designed it around standard width pallets.

    If you go on IFLs FB page they have a few pics from when it was getting the door and one of it on the ramp with the door open.

    Good pics. This looks like a market maker for FedEx and UPS.
