Fools'T - An adjustors coment. I think you may be refering to the crash of a Turkish Airways DC10 on a flight between Paris and London in the 1974.

One of the cargo doors burst open due to the application of "Murphys Law". The violent decompression was such that the cabin floor collapsed destroying control lines, and puting the aircraft in a fatal dive, and ejecting several passengers.

A synopsis of the enquiry including probable causes, and that this type of incident was not designed for with presure equalizing vents etc. may be found Click 'Ere

Do not go digging for photographs, they are not for the squeamish. I can still recall my nausea when the general report passed my desk nearly 30 years ago.
