In the footage, the pair can be seen enjoying the flight over the scenic Turkish Riviera when Turkseve’s magnetic clip-on sunglasses suddenly fly off during an acrobatic maneuver.
When they are done spinning, Turkseve realizes that her sunglasses have flown off during the maneuver and as she tells the instructor, they suddenly fall into her lap.
Amazed, both women burst out laughing as they slowly descend to the golden beaches below.
Then, miraculously, 20 seconds later, the sunglasses seem to land in Turkseve’s lap to the surprise of both women
The pair immediately burst out laughing at their happiness, which was captured on a camera attached to a selfie stick

Aysenur Katirci, who lives in the port city of Fethiye, has been working as a paragliding instructor since 2015
It wasn’t immediately clear how the sunglasses managed to regain Turkseve’s shot, but it appears they flew away on a steep dive and miraculously returned as the tandem paraglide flattened.
The video was actually filmed in the ‘summer season 2019’, but made national headlines last week when Katirci shared it online.
The young instructor, who has been working as a professional tandem paraglider pilot since 2015, said: ‘I have never encountered such a strange incident before. It was a complete coincidence, one in a million.
“It was very unlikely that the falling object would meet us at the same point.”
Katirci said paragliding is a ‘great experience’ and many customers enjoy ‘maneuvers that trigger an adrenaline rush’.
