The biggest risks stewardesses are supposed to face are from intoxicated passengers and air sick toddlers, but Vesna Vulović had to contend with something a bit more traumatic when she went to work Jan 26, 1972.

Working aboard JAT Flight 367, she was on duty when a bomb went off and took down the entire airplane while it was flying over what is now the Czech Republic.

She became a record holder by surviving the ordeal, having falling 33,000 feet out of the sky to have a face to face meeting with Terra Firma. She suffered a broken skull, crushed vertebrae and spent 27 days in a coma before coming around.
