Does anybody have any incredible stories of stowaways? I believe one time a man from Cuba managed to survive a stowaway trip to Spain.

I remember at PanAm we opened up the aft belly of an A300 or A310 at the hangar and a hispanic man came out of the the compartment aft of the aft belly. The aircraft had just made the trip in from Santo Domingo.

I remember reading a few stories of how people ship themselves alive. In the end, things do not turn out well for the "passengers" and they usually have to pay a fine (that is usually well above a full economy class ticket  Big grin).
