Have you ever accidentally dropped your laptop or gadget off the couch or your desk at work? Your heart stops as you scramble to make sure it still works. Now, imagine you dropped your laptop from 1,000 feet up in the air. That actually happened to a pilot and, surprisingly, his MacBook Air still works!

The pilot was flying at an altitude of around 1,000 feet in a small plane and lost the computer when the canopy came open and one his bags fell out. The bag plummeted into a field, where it was found by a farmer named Malopo.

"Malopo claimed he heard a whistling sound and when he looked up he saw a bag hurtling towards him.

"He took one step to the left and it landed where he was standing."

In addition to the MacBook Air, the bag also contained the pilot's license and ID, so the farmer was able to return the still-functioning computer to him.
