Open small doorflap after loading?

Recommended Posts

Could someone please tell me if this small flap door should be open even in flight?  Is there a way to close it?

 

Flap is closed on loading:

Then opens after fully loading:

The open flap in question, is the one below the rear starboard service door

 

Also you will notice another small flap door opens just above the left tyre on the starboard wing.

I think that's one of the ram doors for the air condtioning/pressurization system. They should be closed inflight.

It's the pressure exhaust valve. Must be closed during flight (you can't pressurise the cabin when it's open).

Thank you for the answer, but how are they closed?

It's automatic. Look at the pressurization panel on the bottom right of the overhead. It should be in AUTO. If you really want to monkey with it, put it in MANual and close it.
