white shark. >> this thing came up and almost tried to bite the motor. >> he said he looked hungry. >> it's weird. you see that fin. that's a real thing seeing the fin sticking out of the water. >> i think the catch of the day is actually catching this on video. landing a plane at night is something that pilots do all the time. but being able to land one in a reee i d'ton thi athg t i'm sorry, did you say landing in a tree? >> yes, i did. this took place near green bay, wisconsin. the pilot landed the plane in the tree upside down. >> i'm sure that's not in training books. >> as far as tree landings go, it's a pretty good one because the plane is still intact. >> authorities say the pilot was trying to get back to west band from -- they think he was

4:37 pm
look up dwarf tossing or midget tossing and there's all sorts of events, all sorts of people where they are doing this thing. and the little people are willingly doing it, participating in these sort of almost competitions you see all over the place, just throwing these guys around. >> some of these guys have protection and being thrown onto mattresses. >> this martin henderson believes this random attack that happened to him as a result of what people heard about mike tindall. maybe it takes a guy like martin who is somewhat famous. he's been in movies, a known actors. maybe it takes a case like his to show people how ridiculous and mean and really stupid. >> it's degrading and disrespectful. a volleyball match that is a match. >> a big rally. a rally that's got the net buzzing. it's time for real or fake.
