The pilot’s call for help was calm, but his message was stunning:

“Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! I have a door ajar and I’m heading toward Tamiami,” he said Thursday as he flew over the Atlantic.

Video: Florida pilot mayday call: 'my passenger has fallen out of the plane' - Telegraph

I assume the airplane's door was not closed properly before take-off but I am still wondering how this happened.

Possibly a suicide attempt?

I'm guessing suicide. Will be interesting when we learn more about the passenger.

There was a creature on the wing attempting to pry open a wing panel . . . and only the passenger could see it?

What pilot is gonna keep a passenger from unbuckling and bailing out on that plane? It is a VERY tight squeeze (even on the ground) getting into the passenger area from the cockpit of that plane -- and while still trying to fly the thing? Maybe the suicidee knew how isolated he'd be back there.

Oh well. Creative suicide, that's for sure.

Did anyone consider the possibility that the pilot pushed his passenger out! The perfect murder!

That would be one risky murder method. The pilot sets the plane on autopilot, forces the door open and the passenger out? What if the victim gets a death grip on the pilot and drags them both out? Unless the passenger was drugged or rendered unconscious . . . it would still be very dangerous. I would make sure I had a safety line on before I even opened the cabin door.

"Hi there, passenger! I decided to squeeze back here to see how you're enjoying the flight. Oh, this? It's just a little crowbar. {thwack}
