Plane crashes into ferris wheel

Carnival rides can be scary enough, but then to have a plane crash into one makes the average thrill seeker rethink their idea of fun.

It happened in Sydney, Australia on Saturday and left two children, aged 9 and 13, trapped on the Ferris wheel ride and two people in the plane.

Talk about a freak accident. All four were stranded for about 90 minutes on the ride, but everyone is okay.

Poor weather has been blamed for the pilot's disorientation. The aircraft that crashed into the festival ride was a superlight Cheetah S200.

It did close down the festivities though, according to The New York Times.
