I posted these Electra photos not too long ago and noticed something a bit interesting. Looking at the rear of the aircraft, one can see a group of three windows in close proximity to one another. These are the last group of windows on both of these Electras.

Now what do you suppose is the reason for these three tightly spaced windows?

This is not a quiz question but more of an item for discussion. I think I know the reason for this. If I remember correctly, Electra aircraft operated by PSA during the mid 1960's had a group of seats configured in a semicircular pattern located all the way in the back of the passenger cabin. It was a coach lounge of sorts. These windows enabled passengers seated in this area to see outside.

What do you think?
