When seventeen-year-old Juliane Koepcke and her mother, Maria, decided to fly back home on Christmas Eve 1971, they never expected just how fateful that decision was. What happened next was so unbelievable, so against all the odds, it would become the source of studies, documentaries, and one amazing autobiography. In this latest episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Shelly tells the amazing sole survivor story of Juliane Koepcke – the girl who fell from the sky – and lived to tell her story.
