Phone out the window

Recommended Posts

Check out the new AOPA Live starting at 15:45. Last year I was flying from Iowa to Wisconsin. I was videoing the Mississippi river out the window in my CTLS. I tilted it to get a better shot and it got into the wind and it was ripped from my hand. It fell 2500 feet into a huge woods. I thought it was destroyed and lost forever. I heard about the find my I Phone app. I brought it up on my I Pad and it was still working. After an hour 1/2 drive to Wisconsin we found it after about a 45 minute search. I have a 45 second video of it falling to the ground. The phone is in perfect shape and I'm using it today. I'll upload the video and photos when I fight pre out how to do it.

Oooh... that must not have been a fun moment.  But glad that you were able to find the phone!  Here's the link to the AOPA Live video:

Warning: The video contains political discussion of Santa Monica Airport and Reno Airport.  The video also talks about the hot political subjects BasicMed and ADS-B.
