As soon as the door of the aircraft slightly opened due to a change in pressure, the iPhone fell straight out of the airplane. Ben Wilson happens to be a businessman in Texas who used Find My iPhone app in order to search for the phone. The app located the iPhone for him using a map as well as a satellite image.

Wilson reported that he found the iPhone under a mesquite tree near the road that lies south of Jacksboro. Surprisingly, the iPhone was still in one piece with a few scratches around its corners but it managed to work just fine.
