great show indeed.

how about that flight where the pilots window gave out and pilot got sucked out and the flight attendant was holding him by his foot.

that was some miracle.
That was British Airways Flight 5390, BAC-111. The cockpit windscreen was just bolted from the outside. So once the bolts failed, the cabin pressure just burst the windshield out and sucked the captain out.
Investigation found the maintenance used a bolt one size smaller coz the maintenance crew decided to use new bolts but did not verify the correct bolt to be used.....
