"Unrolled" fuselage is not relevant, since the aircraft at cruise altitude(inflated state) behaves as a punctured balloon.
Nope - There are way too many crackstoppers-stringers, frames ( circumferentials ) involved to act like a puncture ballon.

https://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/m...sion-minimyth/ show what can happen using same differential pressures as at altitude.

Note the section of body part at 1:40 they are hiding behind showing typical inside absent interior trim. And the extra reinforcing around the windows, the long stringers, and part frame( circumferentials )

As to the photo- it **might** be the result of the plane tumbling at speed so the body ' tube" is into the airstream .
