Neerja Bhanot, the flight purser of Pan Am Flight 73, saved 339 passengers when the ill-fated flight was hijacked in September 1986. She sacrificed her life and became the youngest recipient of the Ashok Chakra for her valiant service during the situation of great crisis. However, not many know that while pursuing her career as a purser, Neerja also did a bit of modelling for some brands and magazines. 

Here are 22 vintage ads featuring Neerja Bhanot, the model:
