Dropping your camera from an plane isn’t exactly something you want to do on purpose, but that’s exactly what one owner did who was filming while the plane was making its accent. The camera tumbled violently to the ground from a height of hundreds of feet, filming it’s nauseating spin all the way down until it hit the Earth, ouch.

But that’s not all! The camera actually survived the impact! And it may have something to do with the muddy ground it landed on, where it immediately began filming an amusing surprise.

The camera wasn’t even recovered by the original user, it was found eight months after it was dropped, most likely by a local farmer.
