Bell P-39Q Airacobra: Slam the door softly.

You must have heard a lot of not very pleasant things about the Airacobra, yet “ordinary” is not one of them. The office of “Galloping Gertie” with its car-like doors  and that 10 foot long shaft underneath the pilot’s seat are just some of the Airacobra’s unique peculiarities.
