January 09, 2024

An iPhone, purportedly owned by an individual of Vietnamese origin, fell 5,000 meters from an Alaska Airlines flight and landed with an intact screen and a battery still half-charged. The phone was sucked out of Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 on Friday when a fuselage panel blew off, leaving a gaping hole, AFP reported on Tuesday. A photo of the device posted on X, formerly Twitter, on Sunday showed the intact screen and an emailed $70 baggage receipt. The passenger’s name on the baggage receipt is Cuong Tran, indicating that the iPhone owner might have Vietnamese heritage. “The basic answer is air resistance,” Watts told The Post.
