The Seattle local TV stations have been reporting an incident this afternoon involving a 777. According to those reports the 777 (WA002, the second built) had to land in an emergency at Boeing field after experiencing decompression problems at 43,000 feet. Three people were transported to the hospital. One was released and the other two were transferred to another hospital equipped with decompression chambers. Apparently there were between 10 and 20 people on board including FAA personnel. The 777 was performing a planned test using battery power only when the decompression occurred. Ken Higgins, Boeing's Flight Test Director, suspects a faulty air conditioning duct, but didn't say that definitively.
