List of sole survivors of aviation accidents and incidents

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This list includes sole survivors of aviation accidents and incidents that involved ten or more onboard. Within this list, sole survivor refers to a person who survived an air accident in which all other aircraft occupants died as a direct consequence of the accident. This list does not include initial survivors who later died (possibly in another location) due to injuries sustained during the accident.

Notable examples

wreckage in the forest
33-year-old Phil Bradley was the sole survivor in the 1959 crash of the Piedmont Airlines Flight 349 near Crozet, Virginia.

The earliest known sole survivor is Linda McDonald. On 5 September 1936, she survived a Skyways sightseeing plane crash near Pittsburgh that killed 9 other people, including her boyfriend.[1]

The youngest sole survivor is Chanayuth Nim-anong, who on 3 September 1997, survived a crash when he was just 14 months old. He was the sole survivor of Vietnam Airlines Flight 815, which had 65 deaths in total. The oldest sole survivor is Alexander Sizov, who was 52 years old when the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash occurred on 7 September 2011, with 44 fatalities.

Another sole survivor is a former Serbian flight attendant, Vesna Vulović. According to the Guinness Book of Records she holds the record for surviving the highest fall without a parachute at 10,160 metres (33,330 ft) from JAT Flight 367. There was some controversy in 2009 when it was reported that her story might have been communist propaganda, but flight recorder data strongly supported the official story.[2]

One of the more controversial lone survivors was Huang Yu (Chinese: 黃裕, Hanyu Pinyin: Huáng Yù), who tried to hijack the Cathay Pacific aircraft Miss Macao in 1948 but ended up crashing the plane, killing the other 25 people on board.[3] The deadliest aviation disaster which had a sole survivor was Northwest Airlines Flight 255, which crashed in Romulus, Michigan on 16 August 1987, killing 154 out of the 155 people on board the aircraft, as well as two people on the ground. The sole survivor of the crash was a 4-year-old girl named Cecelia Cichan, who was seriously injured.[4]
