Over waddington again today. Again the nose wheel doors are open. Is this normal or opened for cooling of some kind?

Those aren't nwd's. I have photos of Portuguese ones with these open and the nose wheel extended which is actually between them. You need a 337 expert to tell you exactly what they do but I also have pics of them flying with them both open and closed!

Thanks for that. It had them open for many laps today but then had them closed but then next time around they were open again.
