:-justno :-lol

"Just when Boeing appeared to be finally regaining some confidence in the company's jets - CEO Dennis Muilenburg recently announced that the 737 MAX 8 would likely be back in the air by the new year - the company's new, ultramodern wide-body jet has hit an unexpected hurdle in what was supposed to be its final structural test. During a ground test on Thursday, the door of a new Boeing 777X flew off the fuselage while several FAA inspectors were present to evaluate the test, according to a report from Seattleā€™s KOMO radio."

That is what testing is for I suppose although it is a little worrying having the door fly off the fuselage :-lol

The 747 was the pinnacle for Boeing since then it was downhill.
