The boy who fell from the sky

 

How an Australian teenager climbed inside the wheel-well before he plunged to his death

This grainy photograph captured the moment a teenage stowaway with wanderlust fell to his death from a Japan Airlines flight (left).  Sydney-born Keith Sapsford was only 14 years old when he hid inside the wheel-well of the Japan-bound flight in 1970. But the compartment (right) opened mid-air and the boy plummeted 60 metres to the ground below near Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport.
