A Texas businessman used an app to find his iPhone in a rural pasture after it fell about 9,300 feet (2,835 meters) during a flight from Houston.

The Wichita Falls Times Record News reported Thursday that Ben Wilson says his cellphone still works.

Wilson says he and a pilot were traveling home Monday in a Beechcraft Bonanza when a pressure change caused the passenger door to slightly open. Wilson didn’t realize his cellphone fell out until after landing.

Wilson, who owns Gas Corporation of America, and an employee used an app to narrow the search to near Jacksboro, more than 50 miles (80 kilometers) away.

The pair set on their search Tuesday, and ended up in a rural pasture. They found the cellphone under a mesquite tree.
