    Boeing ceased to be an airplane manufacturer a while back and is now a financial organisation looking for return of shareholder value.

      If a door came off during pressure testing, that could certainly be due to a "defective part" (door itself, latch, hinges etc) but it could also be due to excessive deformation of the fuselage, which is potentially a much bigger issue.

            This is what testing is for, as you say.

              Boeing planes are never very structurally sound, are they? BOAC 911, 747 cargo door failures, TWA 800, 747 engines coming off, 737 roofs ripping off in flight sucking people out the plane, etc...this is why I fly Airbus and Japanese made aircraft!

                            A few questions for Boeing shareholders? Did the same outsourced coders who were paid $9 per hour that helped design MCAS also contribute to the cargo doors design team? Boeing have you fired those who were responsible yet? Starting with your CEO and your penny pinchers who put profits over passenger safety? Boeing will never recover until the do a complete house cleaning starting at the TOP.

                              I was watching a Boeing video and they were testing the 777 and they got a cargo door warning and they said it was probably nothing the sensors showed good pressure and they carried on testing. Wonder if they've deleted the video?

                                          You people don’t have any clue about product development, new planes will always have issues that show up. Not everything goes to plan. That’s why there are test phases. Remember the Airbus plane that flew itself into a bunch of trees? Give Boeing personnel a break.

                                            In Boeing’s case I think “Testing is about papering over cracks” is more accurate than your sentence “Testing is about ironing out cracks”.

                                              That's why Boeing must build all new airplane...not only 'modification' their old aircraft design to make like new aircraft..

                                                The look of the small wings makes me nervous. I always wanted wings big enough to allow the plane to glide if engine power is lost with control.

                                                    Seems like there's at least one thing that Boeing hasn't learned : transparency.

                                                          The 787 is too small to replace old 777s and 747s. The 787 replaces the 767. The 797? will replace the 757. Boeing will be back on top in a few years. If not they will get a bail out.

Quality must be integral to the design process. Testing merely verifies certain aspects of design. Skimp during design and no amount of testing will produce safety. Silicon Valley consistently gets this wrong and consistently offers the milquetoast solution of "we will test better". It's sad to see that a national treasure like Boeing has joined the crowd.
