An apparatus and method for preventing damage to overlapping cowl side edges (23, 25) in the event the cowls (3, 4) are closed in the wrong order. The underlapping edge (23) has a cut-out region (22) that is sufficiently large to permit at least a portion (11) of the overlapping edge (23) to pass therethrough if the cowls (3, 4) are closed in the wrong sequence. A flexible, fireproof seal (24) extends across the cut-out region (22), and maintained firewall integrity between the cowls (3, 4). The seal (24) is sufficiently flexible so as to not impede pass...
