I'll second the British Airways BAC1-11 incident (1990) mentioned by EGBJ above.
There is a precis of this incident on Wikipedia:
The full Air Accident Report can be read here:
By chance I was at SOU
next day and saw the BAC1-11 with the mising window and blood still on the fuselage. Contacts in BA
told me no-one could believe Captain Lancaster survived that incident with such minor injuries.
To land a commercial aircraft with your Captain having been sucked half way out the cockpit window, and only prevented from being completely sucked out by the bravery and speed of Nigel Ogden. Steward and other members of the cabin crew clinging to the Captains legs, must have been a very sudden and frightening experience. Yet training and airmanship skills took over and the co-pilot, Alistair Atchison landed the aircraft safely at Southampton airport.
For this extraordinary display of airmanship he was awarded The BALPA Gold Medal; The Queen’s Commendation for Valuable services in the Air; The Guild of Airline Pilots and Navigators Master’s Medal; The Hugh Gordon Burge Trophy for Safety; the IFALPA Polaris Award; The Federation Aeronautique Diploma for Outstanding Airmanship and the British Airways Award for Excellence.
