A light aircraft, Cheetah S200, has crashed into a ferris wheel at a funfair in a town some 150m north-east of Sydney in Australia. It is thought the pilot misjudged his take-off, causing the crash into the wheel at the Old Bar Festival. Two children were trapped in a carriage at the top of the wheel near the wrecked plane for 90 minutes. The 53-year-old pilot and his 32-year-old passenger were trapped inside the mangled aircraft more than 30 feet (10 meters) above the ground for almost three hours. Nobody was seriously injured.
