777x load test failure

Mon Oct 07, 2019 2:03 pm

I know that they are still reviewing the test results. If it turns out that major rework of the fuselage structure near that area is required, what happens to the plane that was supposed to do flight testing? Do they scrap it and will the mods be applied to it?

If possible, Boeing will modify it, as that'd be much quicker than bringing a new version of the craft off the assembly line. Flight tests bellow pressurization levels will continue regardless.

If they need to modify something it will be the door, not the fuselage.

Did the door blow open or did its frame fail? I couldn't find details about what happened.
