This is a little story taken form the World Airways website (www.worldair.com) that fits the same theme:
"Daly [World's president], the humanitarian, ignored official advice and, on March 29, 1975, flew the two 727s to Da Nang in hopes of rescuing women and children. When the first plane landed, with Daly aboard, thousands of people rushed the plane and clambered aboard anywhere they could. Daly stood at the ventral airstairs using his Golden Glove hands and the butt of a pistol to knock off the soldiers trying to climb aboard the already overloaded plane. With the runway full of people racing toward the airplane, the flight's captain, Ken Healy, took off from a parallel taxiway of about 5,000 feet in length. Despite being hit by a grenade, several bullet holes, and striking a pole on take-off, the aircraft made the usual 40 minute flight in just over two hours. When the aircraft landed at Saigon the crew figured out that they had carried somewhere between 330 and 338 "passengers" - including about 60 in the cargo compartments and eight in the landing gear wells."
