It was Boeing who did the repair on that JAL 747, admittedly not in Seattle. I'm not anti-either, for what's that worth.

E.g. baggage doors blow out consequences, Japan and others.



Blow out baggage doors were DC10s
JAL 747 Fin loss, was due to sub standard repair, not conforming to Boeing repair scheme, Hardly Boeings fault.

Please be anti Boeing if you wish, but with the facts!

A United 747 did have an in-flight baggage door loss and explosive decompression over the Pacific in the late 80s.

The aircraft was not lost, although there were several fatalities as rows of seats departed the cabin. :(

The cause was attributed to design and manufacturing faults.

Was that the one that the family of the deceased passenger paid for a 12,000 submersible to find the lost cargo door? And proved the initial NTSB report incorrect?

My edit: yes it was the family of one of the deceased passengers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Ai ... Flight_811
