    Is a set of rectangular warning lights.

    One of them says "Aft Air Stairs".

    After that they modified the aircraft so the aft stairs could not be opened in flight.

    The device was called the "D.B. Cooper vane".

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
