The Galunggung Gliders Club

The Galunggung Gliders Club

In 1982, after flying through a cloud of volcanic ash over Indonesia, a Boeing 747 plane lost power in all 4 engines. After gliding for 14 minutes, all 4 engines were restarted, and the plane landed safely. The pilot subsequently founded a group for survivors of the flight called 'The Galunggung Gliders Club.'
