I've read that some 737-200s were equipped for operating out
of unimproved airfields.  Supposedly, they were equipped with
(among other things) air jets at the bottoms of the nacelle
inlets, to blow debris away from the intakes.  Is this slush
deflector door part of that package?

And just how many of these "unimproved-field" -200s (if
any) did Boeing actually build?
