"Here's another piece!"
The small charter airplane I was riding, was coming apart in mid air! The pilot seemed amused as I called out my alarm over the headset intercom.
Deep in the desolate Aussie Outback, we were flying high above the red-hued rock and scared Aboriginal site known as Uluru (formerly Ayers Rock). Sitting in the rear cargo hold photographing the scene beneath me, air rushing in through the open fuselage door of the single engine Cessna 217, was slowly ripping apart the interior trim and carpet! It was alarming... and very annoying!
