Default Another Day Another Door

A Singapore Airlines (SIA) Boeing 777-300ER had its second leftside door ripped from the airframe at Los Angeles International airport on 16 April at 17.50 hours local time.

The carrier confirmed the incident, which happened as the aircraft "was being prepared for towing to its departure gate from a remote bay." The 777 was scheduled to operate as flight SQ7 from Los Angeles to Seoul on that day.

"There were no passengers on board at the time and there were no injuries. A damage assessment is being carried out, and the aircraft will return to Singapore after repairs are completed."

An image posted on-line shows the aircraft parked without the door, next to an aerobridge.

The carrier did not identify the aircraft's registration, but the on-line image shows that 9V-SWV (MSN 42236) was the affected aircraft.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that 9V-SWV was built in 2013, and had been in service with SIA since new.
