Summary
  • Describes an 11-day ordeal faced by the 17-year old sole survivor of an airplane crash in the Peruvian jungle in 1971
  • She was 17-years-old on a Christmas Eve flight 40 years ago to join her father for Christmas when the unimaginable happened. The Lockheed L-188A Electra, on the way from Lima to Pucallpa, flew directly into a thunderstorm. A strike of lightning left the plane incinerated and Juliane Diller (Koepcke) still strapped to her plane seat falling through the night air two miles above the Earth. Her survival is unexplainable and considered a modern day miracle. Her mother was among the 91 dead and Juliane the sole survivor. For eleven days she crawls and walks alone through the jungle, fighting for her
