Pilot flying the new iPhone into the U.S. does his part to launch the phone this Friday
With 4 million Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus units pre-ordered, a large number of these handsets can be found in various stages of getting shipped, every day. One person, who flies freight for a living, was behind the controls for a shipment of 195,000 iPhones from China to Alaska. These units will eventually make their way to Chicago.

The shipment weighed in at 256,000 pounds. The phones are covered by a tarp, and are then loaded inside the plane. China Daily posted a picture of a different plane getting loaded with Apple's iconic smartphone, and in that photograph the devices are covered in a similar fashion. For those in Chicago waiting for their Apple iPhone 6 or Apple iPhone 6 Plus to arrive, you should be pleased at the efforts made by the pilot to land a little bit earlier than scheduled.
