I hope they at least gave you a monkey strap. Or maybe when I had to hang out the back of a Chinook, the US Army crew was just more anxious to avoid the ton of paperwork they would have had to generate if I fell out.

I was using a Fujica ST 901 so it was easy compared to that cannonball you were carrying.

Some of my best photographs have been made under those same circumstances.

Ever try a Pentax SLR 1000mm lens. Fine photo takers but are best used when mounted to a jeep.
