Flying Sharks Attacking New Zealand Pilots

Those flying sharks. Although they look like an innocent and entertaining helium toy, our Kiwi cousins are discovering another truth - they're savage killers intent on taking down Kiwi aircraft.

While real sharks are contained to the waters, these airborne monstrosities have a strong tendency to escape captivity. And now they're attacking planes in New Zealand, with one shark getting within 100 metres of a plane 2000 feet in the air, about 5.5 nautical miles south of Christchurch.

According to aviation officials in New Zealand, the shark attack won't be investigated as they don't consider the helium based toy a threat to the planes. But just like the Mayor in Jaws who refuses to shut the beach, it's a decision they're destined to regret.
