North Texas energy exec recovers cellphone that fell from plane

🕐 1 min read

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (AP) — A North Texas businessman used an app to find his iPhone in a pasture after it fell about 9,300 feet during a flight from Houston.

The Wichita Falls Times Record News reported Thursday that Ben Wilson says his cellphone still works.

Wilson, who owns Gas Corp. of America in Wichita Falls, and a pilot were in a Beechcraft Bonanza returning home Monday.

Wilson says a pressure change caused the passenger door to slightly open. Wilson didn’t realize his cellphone fell out until after landing.

Wilson and an employee used the Find My iPhone app and narrowed the search to near Jacksboro, more than 50 miles away.

The pair set out Tuesday, ended up in a rural pasture and located the cellphone under a mesquite tree.
