Note: Volume, phone falling from plane.

This is a video from pilot Blake Henderson, who was filming a JN-4 Jenny bi-plane (seen for a second at the very beginning of the video) when he hit a spot of turbulence and his Samsung Galaxy S5 was sucked out of his plane at 1,000 feet and plummeted to earth. The phone survived, and was found by a man cleaning up around his backyard. Impressive. This phone survives a 1,000 foot fall and my phone can't even survive a drop from my pocket to the bathroom floor when my pants are around my ankles at a urinal. WTF, Apple? "That is not an iPhone." Then what is it? "It looks like a Speak & Spell." You need to make your phones smaller, this thing barely fits in my JNCOs.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to adam and Zootghost, who agrees that thing probably could have done some damage to somebody's head. Can you hear me now? CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? I think I killed him.
