Juliane Kopcke

Juliane Diller (born 1954 in Lima as Juliane Margaret Kopcke) was the sole survivor of 93 passengers and crew in the December 24, 1971 crash of LANSA Flight 508 (a LANSA Lockheed Electra OB-R-941 commercial airliner) in the Peruvian rainforest.

Juliane Kopcke was a high school senior studying in Lima, intending to become a zoologist, like her parents. She and her mother, famed ornithologist Maria Kopcke, were traveling to meet with her father, biologist Hans-Wilhelm Kopcke, who was working in Pucallpa.
