Coincidentally, I saw an episode of Air Crash Investigations recently covering Reeve Aleutian Airways Flight 8 in 1983.
Lockheed Electra lost a prop.

"The propeller tore a gash 8 feet (2.4 m) long in the aircraft's belly, causing the cabin to depressurize and jamming the flight controls and engine throttle controls."

All were very lucky to survive.
Good episode.
