Another bad news for the 777X. During the final pressurization test on the ground, a door blew off.
Indeed: Boeing on Saturday announced it had suspended load testing of its new widebody 777X aircraft as media reports said a cargo door failed in a ground stress test.

The Seattle Times reported a cargo door exploded outward during a high-pressure stress test on the ground. The newspaper said the accident occurred on a static test airplane, which is built for ground testing only and not intended to fly.

Boeing does not expect the root-cause assessment in B777X load testing will have a significant impact on aircraft design or on the overall test programme schedule.
