3 monthes ago   |   By Ubergizmo

A couple of friends went for a ride in a vintage biplane in Ames, Iowa earlier this month. One of them took out her phone to take pictures, as you do in this day and age, and dropped it. The iPhone fell almost 1,000 feet to the ground that would have been enough for many to assume that it was gone forever. However, she located her device with the Find my iPhone feature and much to her surprise found the device to have survived the 1,000 feet fall.

A fun ride aboard a vintage biplane turned into what could have been a disappointment at first, when one of the passengers accidentally dropped her phone, which fell 1,000 feet to the ground, ostensibly never to be seen again, and most probably damaged due to the height from which it fell. However, the woman was reportedly able to find the device with her unit's Find My iPhone feature, without a single scratch and still working as normal.
According to a report from Iowa NBC affiliate WHO-TV , Sarvinder Naberhaus and Donna Johnson, who had both known each other since high school, went to...
