Jetway Stairs

The majority of the jetways at the airport have ladders/stairs on their side to enable ground crew to go upstair to the plane. Usually the ladder has a pivotpoint on the upperside and some wheels on the ground. The ladder's angle changes as the jetway pitches up and down.

AFAIK this is not yet solvable with the current Node structure or at least the jetway example does not have it.

It would be nice to have a ground lock or something like that.

Thanks a lot!

Yes, this is a really important problem with complex/detailed jetway models. It seems no stairs animation is currently available.
