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.

I can't believe DHL didn't paint the engines yellow too!

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

If you look at the date in the article it was dated Feb 14 so can't blame Simple Flying, maybe that's where you read it originally

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!
