JAT Yugoslav Flight 364

On January 26, 1972, JAT Yugoslav Flight 364 was bombed over Srbska Kamenice in Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic).

The DC-9 crashed following an explosion by a bomb placed by émigré Croat Ustaša extremists.

The flight had six crew members and twenty two passengers.

One crew member survived, a flight attendant named Vesna Vulović. Vulovic entered the Guinness Book of Records for the highest fall without a parachute, as she fell from 10,160 meters (33,000 feet) inside of the tail section of the aircraft. She was paralyzed from the waist down but lived to tell about it. She continued working for the airline holding a desk job.
