Summary:
On April 28, 1988, an Aloha Airlines Boeing 737 with 89 passengers on board, based at the Honolulu International Airport, Hawaii, was scheduled for a series of Inter-island flights. As the airplane leveled at 24,000 feet, both pilots heard a loud "clap" or "whooshing" sound followed by a wind noise behind them. The captain observed that the cockpit entry door was missing and that there was blue sky where the first-class ceiling had been. The aircraft had suffered an explosive decompression and lost approximately 1/3 of its roof! One flight attendant was ejected from the aircraft. But, through the heroic efforts of the crew--which were captured by the plane's Black Box--the plane was skillfully guided to a safe landing back at Honolulu. Incredibly, the pilots had managed to fly the aircraft for nearly a half-hour with a full third of the aircraft's roof missing.
