On 10 June 1990, on British Airways Flight 5390, the cockpit window blew out, blowing the captain partially through the hole. A member of the cabin crew clung to the pilot's legs as the co-pilot completed an emergency landing. The captain was found to be still alive after being outside the cockpit for 21 minutes. The blow out was caused by a maintenance worker installing incorrectly-sized bolts during maintenance work.
