If memory serves, American Airlines had a DC-10 cargo door open over Windsor, Ontario, and lost a casket of human remains which, to my knowledge, has never been found. Turkish Airlines also had a cargo door open on a flight to Paris and unfortunately that resulted in a multiple fatality crash.

Yesterday ? I read that story a couple of days ago at least.

That's the Simple Flying quality you get. High output, low standards.

What other model was this a consistent issue on a couple or three decades ago?

Oh well. Somewhere there is an image of a cargo CV-880 landing in (MIA?) with a cargo door wide open.
The difference is the 880 was built like a tank, so just close the door and carry on.

57's old - search for engine cowling replacements easier / faster if your not looking for yellow one

Having pieces falling from the airplane is never a good. Mechanically designing a door to function as a plug door requires complex mechanisms and lubrication and keeping up with wear and tear because of hysteresis. I've seen flight attendants who could not close a main cabin door which is about 50% of their job. It will be interesting to follow on with what the investigation reveals.

A Flight Attendant doesn't close a cargo door!
