    rc-plane-crash-ocean.jpg This is the video from an R/C plane flying over Osprey Bay in Western Australia when the plane's operator loses sight of it in the sun's glare and crashes it into the ocean. Mayday, mayday! The R/C plane then continues to film the sea life around a reef, including a bunch of fish and at least one shark. Sadly, there were no mermaids. Or sign of Nemo, leading at least one blogger to speculate he really is floating belly-up in Darla the fish-killer's aquarium. Hit the jump for the video, but feel free to skip (or prance) around.

The 45 trails include jump lines, pump tracks, dual slalom, BMX, cross Country and single track. I have no clue what any of those are. What I do know is I'm going to go down there and bunny hop so f***ing hard I bring the roof down. Keep going for the videos.
