It's a bird! It's a plane! Wait...it's something plummeting out of a plane straight at me!

The laptop's survival is just the second-craziest part of this story. Redditor av8or, as you might have guessed from his name, flies planes. He claims to be a properly trained South African pilot with a license and everything. We'll just have to take his word for that, since he somehow managed to let the canopy of his small aircraft pop open while he was going 200 km/hr (124 mph) at 1,000ft. When that happened, his backpack (containing his laptop, pilot's license and other important documents), flew out. That's when the hero of this story appeared 1,000 feet below: Malopo
