Tests of the latest Boeing 777X airliner failed

The American aircraft manufacturing corporation Boeing does not end the black stripe, which began after two plane crashes and the ban on flights of the 737MAX model.

During a leak test last Thursday in the presence of inspectors from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a door flew out of a Boeing 777X.

About this, referring to the sources that were present at the test, reports the French agency AFP. As follows from the message, the corporation recognized that the tests were unsuccessful.

According to one FAA inspector, the essence of the tests is that the aircraft is exposed to negative factors, which are several times stronger than those that the liner experiences during operation.

Due to a clear defect, the tests in the hull design were suspended and the corporation specialists searched for the reasons for what happened.

The fiasco that suffered the Boeing 777X casts doubt on the first test flights planned for early 2020.

Meanwhile, every failure of Boeing leads to a strengthening of competitors in the market. First of all, we are talking about Airbus, which fills an empty niche.

Recall that in June, only on the first day of the salon at Le Bourget, Airbus signed a contract for the supply of 100 aircraft of the American Air Lease Corporation (ALС).

    The more creative and top-shaped - the worse the results!

    The door that flies out during the tests is somehow shallow ...
    They have 300 pieces of pre-orders - more than ours, they do everything in just a year, or even 2.

      The door is candy for the press. If Boeing is levied with sanctions, like ours in the Russian Federation, it will not be better than ours (a consequence of K. Marx is reasoning about the working capacity of peoples).

        Alas. Sanctions do not threaten them. Even from our suppliers of titanium - money does not smell.
        And the door is nonsense, IMHO. If that was serious ....
        About 15 years ago they wrote - the plastic on the tail of the Boeings began to crack. So replaced very quickly ... - once - and the topic is in the past ...
