Holland's aircraft was filmed crossing one ridgeline about 30 feet (10 m) above the ground. Fearing for their safety, the photography crew ceased filming and took cover as Holland's aircraft again passed low over the ground, this time estimated as clearing the ridgeline by only three feet (1 m). The co-pilot on Holland's aircraft testified that he grabbed the controls to prevent Holland from flying the aircraft into the ridge while the aircraft's other two aircrew members repeatedly screamed at Holland: "Climb! Climb!" Holland responded by laughing and calling one of the crew members "a pussy".

Good Saturday Subscribers: these are the Hilton Sisters. Siamese twins, correctly called conjoined twins. More than a dozen of the photo albums in my collection have postcards like this one of them. They were famous in their time and you should look them up on Wikipedia. Especially the parts where they got married!
