Over 150 people survived falling from an airplane without a parachute

According to the Geneva-based Aircraft Crashes Record Office, between the years of 1940 and 2008 there were 157 people who fell out of planes during a crash and survived without a parachute living to tell about it. 42 of those falls occurred at heights at over 10,000 feet! One  incident involved a British Tail-gunner whose plane was shot down during WWII. He fell over 18,000 feet without a parachute. His fall was broken by pine trees and soft snow.
