Boeing suspends 777X testing following cargo door blowout

Mon Sep 09, 2019 12:29 pm

Boeing has suspended testing of its 777X aircraft after a cargo door reportedly blew out during a ground test. Not a good sign at all. The DC-10 rear cargo door also failed during pressurization load testing. We all know how that ended up.

Boeing engineers may have more work to do on this airframe before 777X is ready to proceed.
