Have you ever wondered over where the back air-stairs on aircraft have gone? Those stairs that looked like they went straight into the tail of the aircraft.
Did you know that those stairs are connected to the reason we have baggage checks on aircraft today as well as to stories about the CIA and one of the most famous crimes in aviation history?
In todays episode I will give you some background to the awesome history of Air-stairs and much, much more.
