  • Sarvinder Naberhaus told local TV news, WHO TV, that she found the phone hours later using the Find My iPhone app.

A woman has described how she dropped her iPhone from a plane and then found it in perfect working condition using the Find My iPhone app.

Sarvinder Naberhaus, from Iowa, US, took a leisure flight on a vintage American aeroplane. She was taking pictures from the passenger seat when the wind caught her phone and ripped it from her grasp.

“The wind just took it and it was gone. I looked down and there were cornfields below me,” Naberhaus told Iowa local TV station, WHO TV. Rob Lock, the pilot, told her she’d never see it again after it fell 1,000 feet.

But after landing, Naberhaus fired up the Find My iPhone app. It failed at first, but just as she was about to head out to buy a new phone, the app sparked into life with the location of her iPhone.

Naberhaus and a friend eventually found it nestled in a patch of grass in a residential area. The device did not have a scratch on it, and was working perfectly.

"It was face up in the grass right by me, and it was really nice, tall, soft grass," Naberhaus laughed, adding that it taught her that "God has a great sense of humour."
