Default Back Window idea

well, this might be a crazy idea, but.....

Could the back window some how be converted to two access doors for the baggage area? In an emergency, they could be used to get out of the plane.

bad idea, terrible idea, dumb idea or maybe not completely crazy.

Just throwing this one out there.

Iím not good with the search function on this board; however, it has been done to split the rear window and make a mooney like access door.

Sounds like a great idea to me! Unless you are worried about getting gunned, not sure what you need the back windows for (except it looks cool)....
