Narrative:
Two hours into a flight, the pilot side door suddenly opened (the door frame fracturing at the top RHS corner). Whilst struggling to control the aircraft and re-close the door, the door separated from the aircraft. Control was regained and the flight continued. An hour later, the passenger side door opened and broke. This time the door was secured and the plane was flown to a nearby airstrip where a landing was carried out. The broken door was removed and the plane was flown on to Victoria uneventfully.
