MacBook falls 1,000 feet from airplane, survives the landing February 16, 2015

Here’s a story about a tech miracle that involves flying and an Air in the air. Reddit user av80r, also known as Carl, has a passion for flying. He hopped into a single-engine two-seater SportCruiser aircraft and took off for a leisure flight from Lanseria International Airport in South Africa. He was heading down the runway when the canopy (essentially the cockpit cover) popped open slightly. By that point, Carl decided his best bet was to come back down to Earth. On the way back, he realized an orange Thule bag containing his MacBook Air laptop was missing, having been sucked out at 1,000 feet in altitude.

The search for the airborne baggage was initially in vain, until Carl discovered someone had posted on his Facebook wall about finding his bag. A farmer named Malopo had just missed getting hit by the flying Thule. Maloto’s boss went through the bag, found Carl’s details and tracked him down on Facebook to facilitate the reunion between the pilot and his gear. Carl gave both the farmer and his boss reward money for their help.
